firstly you will need to remove ashtray, and screws behind it, the panel should be lifted from the bottom and pulled out towards you, im sure the top of panel has little knobs that pull out. disconnect wires going to lighter and light. remove screws from factory unit and disconnect.
i would go to auto barn and buy a plug that fits factory radio loom and what ever brand head unit you get. i used original bracks so the new unit is screwed in the dash, Hard to steal now!!!. then refit all parts above and check your unit clears the cut out for the unit. some head units may require you to leave outer trim off or trim the factory surround panel.
hope this helps. if you get stuck PM me.
