Many times this is obvious (like on cd players that skip) but sometimes not
so clear like sound that comes and goes (is it speaker, the amp, or stereo).

OEM Stereos do not require removing the knobs or faceplates as
they did decades ago. They generally come out to the front as a complete stereo.
The brackets that hold them in are usually just hidden by the dash trim that
surrounds it. These panels generally have a couple well hidden screws holding
them and then they usually will unsnap off, carefully. Once the stereo is out
away from the dash you will see the connectors have a tab type lock to squeeze
and release to unplug them.

come out using prongs to push in the holes along the edge. That releases the
stereo to slide straight out. The prongs can be purchased at an auto parts store
or the dealer parts dept. Notice along the edges of the stereo is a slim cover
that pops off and exposes the holes for the prongs.

Speaker Removal Tips
rear speaker grills and glove box in between the rear speakers on back deck.
Open the glove box and notice the 4 plastic round clips that hold glove box
down. Use a small tool to lift the center plastic round pin, then with it up the
dime size outer clip will snap out. (with the center pushpin down it locks the
clip down). With the 4 push pins out of there then box will lift out. Remove the
4 large phillips screws directly under the glove box, along the large hole where
the box was removed from. Now the oval shaped plastic piece that holds the
grills, will unsnap up. We find it easier to look at the clips from the trunk
side and use pliers to squeeze and help out of the metal, to unsnap up. Just
squeeze each snap and push it out. Now you'll be able to lift it out of there to
expose the 6X9's which are just screwed down.
