do you have the double din dash kit (what holds the radio there) if so it should come with a plastic tab that screws in to the back of your radio and slides on the rail like ur OEM one did. Explain how it don't fit?

ok, i did this about a week ago, i will try to remember. to take off the front cover, i took a flathead and it popped off. then the dials, buttons and screen assembly came off, there were ten some crews that held the main part in place there was no way to fit the new one in.

Ummm. I'm not sure what you mean, but it sounds like you took the factory radio apart in the dash. There are 2 U shaped tools that you stick in the 4 holes in the face plate of the radio. Gently pull them apart, and the radio will pop out of the dash. You then unplug the wire harness and antenna from the back. Very simple. After that, reinstalling an aftermarket stereo requires a few adapters for the dash, and the wiring.

yea i am pretty sure you broke the factory one go to wally world there are din "keys" that go in the 4 holes put them in there push them in towards the middle and pull u can use a coat hanger just have patients.Then you go to autozone or wal mart buy the wiring harness plug it in to the one you pull off of the OEM radio then splice it to the one on back of ur a/m radio. and ur good to go just get a single din Dash Kit at wall mart all in all ur looking at prob 30 bucks
