Turn the radio on and remove any tapes or CDs you may have in it.

Turn off the vehicle and the accessory power.
With your car in park, put the parking brake on so that the car can't move while you're working on it.

Use an adjustable ("crescent-style") wrench to remove the negative battery cable from the battery. Loosen the nut and bolt on the cable terminals and slip it off of the battery post.

Insert a set of DIN tools into the openings on either side of the front of the radio, and push in until you feel a click. DIN tools are simple metal, U-shaped tools that are designed to disengage the catches holding the radio in place. You can purchase them at car audio shops or auto supply shops.

Spread the DIN tools outward and pull the radio towards you until you can reach the backside of the radio.

Disconnect the white plug and the antenna plug (silver) by pulling them away from the radio.

Pull the radio completely out of the dash.

For any make/model vehicle, go to Metra Online | Welcome to Metra Auto Parts Online Warehouse, enter your vehicle, select the dash kit for that vehicle, and view the PDF instructions. They will tell you how to take the dash apart.
