How to Remove the Car Stereo in a Hyundai Accent


Hyundai is a popular car brand in the United States, and the mid-sized Accent is one of their top sellers. Hyundai Accents come equipped with factory radios, but if you’re an audio enthusiast or want to take advantage of features that may not be found on your factory radio (like Bluetooth, or iPod control), you may want to replace the existing car stereo in your Hyundai Accent with a new stereo. To do this, you’ve have to remove the old one first.

Items you will need: phillips screwdriver, panel tool or putty knife

Step 1 – Open the glove box. There are stops on each side of the glove box — push in on the sides of the glove box so it will clear the stops, and let the glove box hang. This will expose a cable behind the glove box.

Step 2 – Pull the exposed cable away from a metal clip that’s holding it into position, and then remove the cable by pushing in on the plastic clip that’s holding the end of it in place.
