My suggestion would be to buy a wiring harness and a dash mounting kit. After that unscrew or pull out the console/dash part thats around your factory deck. Then unscrew the bolts/screws holding the factory one in place. Remove it. Plug the wiring harness into the factory wire plug. Pull harness wires through the mounting kit. Attach the corresponding colored wires from the harness to your new deck. Slide your deck into the mounting kit and secure it in place. Most decks have little prongs that you can pry up to **** up against the mounting kit so it wont slide out without pushing those down (makes it more secure and harder to steal). Place deck with mounting kit into area factory deck was. Put the screws/bolts back into place tightly. Place console/dash part back on. You will need the mounting kit (99% of new decks are smaller than the factory). Wiring harness is optional but recommended.
Likely the quickest way to find one is at a scrapyard. Next and likely only other option is to order one from a dealer. Before installing, check the connections to make sure that wiring attached inside the remaining plug is still connected.
You need to remove the front face on the dashboard...either you can "feel" your way through this, or you can get a basic manual like haynes that contains instructions. Most radios have accessory packages available that consist of an adapter harness and face plate which will make the job go a bit easier.R&R instructiona are not complicated but too long to write out. Good luck!
I changed my spark plugs and wires myself two days ago after a quote of around $550 from a local repair shop with welcomed success. It's really high because of the time it takes to do this job. I took my time and did it in about 5 hrs. The answer given for the website is a great source and helped me through a very tedious process. My best advice in addition to that is to have some 1" tape (i used flourescent green for visibility) and a sharpie and mark EVERY STINKING WIRE, HARNESS, PLUGS AND HOSES. Also it helps to make a small diagram of the bolt patterns and varoius lengths and placement of each. I started with numbering the bolts and lettering the wires and harnesses to combat confusion. I hope this helps anyone taking on this hideous task.
