2002 Hyundai Sonata radio

I am attemting to replace a radio in a 2002 Hyundai Sonata.
It is an AM-FM CD-Cassette.
Can anyone offer any tips on how to remove this radio?.
Also, I have found several replacement radios on the internet, and Ebay, that are the same radio, however, my question is will I need some kind of code for the replacement radio.

If you go to Crutchfield.com, you can order step by step instructions with photos for $5.

If your owners manual does not state it has some security feature on the radio, then a OEM replacement shouldn't either. Why not look into a aftermarket stereo?

Don't buy any OEM radios w/o checking closely about the security code. I'll bet 90% of them are stolen. Just had a post the other day about this issue.

Call the dealer if nothing else. Ask the seller for the Serial number and Code...1/2 the time on the 'Net you'll never hear back from them.
