It depends on the make and model of the vehicle but typically u need a new cd player dash kit for the vehicle wiring harness adapter specific to the vehicle a screw driver wire cutters and electrical tape
to access the stereo you need to remove the dash piece around the control panel. after that you will see 2 or 4 screws holding in the stereo housing remove that and the stereo should slide right out. good luck.
You will have to remove the dash cover to gain access to that bezel piece. That bezel actually extends around the instrument cluster and and radio area, all one piece. The dash cover is held on by a series of torx screws located under the top defrost vent, side access panels (when you open the car doors, there is a panel on each side). In the glove box area and there are two 10 mm bolts that are tucked up under in the glove box area but accessible. After you remove the dash cover, you can remove the torx screws that hold the bezel in place. On the bezel down by the radio, there are spring clips that hold that part of the bezel. Remember when replacing the stock OEM radio, you will need to buy a mounting hardware kit, wiring harness kit and antenna kit for the Cavalier that will work with your new cd player.
Disconnect the negative battery terminal to prevent
an accidental short circuit. Pop out the dimmer
switch panel and remove (1) Phillips screw
exposed. Unsnap the gear shifter trim plate and
remove (1) Phillips screw exposed at the base of
the dash trim bezel. Reach under the driver's
side dash, locate the temperature control cable
and remove the cable from the white plastic
bracket. Position the gear shifter in low, pull the
dash panel away and disconnect all wiring harnesses.
Remove the trim bezel (the temperature
controlcable will be attached). Remove (4)
Phillips screws securing the factory head unit
and disconnect the wiring.
You need to remove the instrument panel bezel to gain access to the radio.
There are two screws above the instruments that need to be removed and another behind the ashtray. Once those screws are removed, you can simply pull gently on the plastic fascia and it will pop off (it is held in place by clips). Do not pull too hard because the emergency flasher button and passenger airbag status indicator will be tethered by their wiring.
Once you pull the bezel away from the dash, you can swing it up out of the way and you will see four screws holding the radio in place. Remove those screws and the radio will slide out.
Disconnect the wiring harness and antenna from the back of the radio for complete removal.
PS ... most stereo shops will do free removal of the old radio and installation of a new radio with a minimum purchase of around $100 or more. That's another option ...
after you remove all the screws from the dash you have to get down to a section by the pedals and remove something like the airbag to get at the last part of the dash apart. then you need to unplug the mirror and back wiper switches (opt i think). then you have access to your radio. These are all things i gathered from watching the guy at futureshop do, it was about $100 and now I don't have fm radio. but I am now going to try it on my own.
1998 new, well, okay, u will need to have an philips screw driver and remove part of ur AC Buttons panel from undearneath there should be some screws remove them all, from top and bottom, and the see if the panel is loose enough to remove it, and then u ll be able to see the screws that hold the Deck. and i believe what u need to do now, (remove the wiring and install the adapter and ur new CD Player)
