On the factory radio sides, around the middle area you will see a small square. Lift from the inside of the radio out and you will find a screw with a five sided cavity (anti-theft feature). Use a small screwdriver that fits snugly and loosen it. After you do this on both sides you can slide the radio out. The plug on the back of the radio gave some trouble and I actually broke it. It has a slide lock that once you've got it out you'll understand. As for the harness, I just bought the harness for the car year from Ebay along with an antenna adapter (you will need it!) and it worked perfectly. I did my new harness for the new radio and adapter before I took it all out and it was all plug and play. Good Luck!
