I'm trying to figure out how to install aftermarket stereos into our two Kias... (2004 Optima LX and 2001 Rio). Specifically, how do I get the factory stereos out??? :blink: It looks like you have to take a good chunk of the console/dash off just to get to it... but how?? Thanks

I have a 2001 Kia Rio and here's what I've discovered:

Pull out the ashtray. There is a screw in the molding. Take out the screw. Pull of that little knob that goes from side to side and controls the heat from outside/inside. Then, gently pry around the edges of that black piece of molding and it should pop right off. Your stereo is held in by two screws. I haven't taken mine out but I did get that far. It looks to be pretty easy.
