It varies slightly from year to year but the basic process for removal is this:

Carefully pry the bezel off that surrounds the radio and HVAC controls. Use a screwdriver to pry it off...it should pop off. There MAY be one screw down towards the bottom.

Once the bezel is off the radio will come out easily. Remove the 4 screws and it should pull out.

Yes, you will need an adaptor kit or simply tap into the wiring.

The color code for the audio system from the 2000 electrical manual is as follows. The 2002 should be the same.

Blue/yellow: illumination
Black/yellow: +12 volt switched power
Light green/black: Memory
Black: Ground
Blue/red: LF speaker -
Green: LF speaker +
Brown: RF speaker -
Light green/yellow: RF speaker +
Blue/orange: LR speaker -
Green/yellow: LR speaker +
Green/red: RR speaker -
Yellow: RR speaker +
