There are two holes in either side of the face plate. There is a tool (shaped like a pair of elongated horseshoes) that you can use. But I have gotten them out without the tools by taking 4 small nails inserted in the holes and a slight outward pressure to compress the clips while pulling on them.
Once you get it out, you will see the mechanism and smile.

    How do i remove the old factory stereo to install a new after market one???


    Please follow the detailed instructions below carefully;

    1.Basically, you remove the 4 philip's head screws holding the instrument panel in ( two above the steering wheel area, and two are hidden in the ash tray, so you have to remove it).

    2.Then you GENTLY pry the whole panel loose, because it is held in place by several clips all around. If you use a screw driver, cover it in tape so you don't damage the plastic. (Note; it's a good idea to disconnect the battery before going any further.)
    3.Then you have to unplug all the attached connectors so you can remove the panel entirely.

    4.Then you unscrew the stereo mount (6 screws), pull it out, and unplug the two connectors.

    5.At this point, you need a wire harness and mount kit to install an after market stereo.

    6.Installation is the reverse of removal.

    Have a nice day!!!
