The bezel comes off with a firm tug, then there are two 7mm bolt on the bottom front on the unit. Easy as pie.

Go buy a wiring harness adapter at Walmart for about 16 bucks, makes it much easier if you don't have a wiring diagram for the factory wiring. All in all its super easy and takes about 15 minutes start to finish. Side note, use some good wire crimps or solder with wires, don't just wrap em in electrical tape like I've seen so many people do.

Go to Walmart, but the adapter harness for around $15. Your new headunit has a harness on it. Take both harness', and connect the colors! Use electrical tape or preferably crimpers and connect the wires. Plug one side into the in dash harness, other into the headunit, put everything back together and bam! You saved about $50 lol
