installing in dash CD player

How hard is it to install a cd player to replace a am/fm cassette player in a 96 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. whats involved assuming all the wires are original sense the car was built and the radio thats in it is original.radio works just want to upgrade

It's not too difficult.

You will have to remove the front plastic bezel that surrounds the stereo. Look for any screws around it and then pull it off.

Remove the screws holding the stereo in and pull it out until you can get your hand behind there too disconnect the wire harness and antenna cable.

You will have to get a stereo mounting kit specific for your car. Most Circuit City, Best Buy, etc type places will sell it for your car.

Then you will need a wire harness adaptor that is made for your car.

Then just plug that into your factory wiring harness and install radio.

If you get the equipment through crutchfield.com, they will send you a How-to for your vehicle for free.
