What you will need

If you want to install a car radio without a wiring harness adapter, there are a few things you will need.
-A Phillips head screwdriver
-An 8mm wrench
-A flathead screwdriver
-Wire cutters or razor blades
-Radiator hose clamp (optional)
-Hose clamp
-Tape measure
The first thing you will need to do is unscrew the faceplate on the car radio. On some radios this is held in place by two screws, while on others it may require pulling off the faceplate entirely. Once the faceplate is off, use your Phillips head screwdriver to remove the four screws that hold the unit chassis to the radio cabinet. Be sure not to lose these screws! Once all four screws are out, take note of where they went as we will need them later. Next, use your flathead screwdriver to pry off the metal bracket that attaches the chassis to the back of the radio cabinet. Again, be sure not to lose this piece! The next step is to remove the old car radio from its mounting bracket. Carefully pull it out and set it aside. Next, decide which wire needs to go where in order for your new car radio to work properly. If you are replacing an old stereo with a new one, just connect everything up and you’re done!

2. Connect the positive (red) and negative (black) wires from your new stereo to the appropriate screw terminals on your old stereo. Make sure the red wire is connected to the red terminal, and the black wire is connected to the black terminal.
