Crutchfield has a great how to. I don't know if you have to buy it from them to get it but I'd imagine someone has posted it somewhere.

Do you love winter sports and are a photographer or filmer?

You'll have to pull the center console so you can get at the screws that hold in the stereo surround. Takes a bit of patience. IIRC, all fasteners are #2 Phillips. That's assuming your '96 is the same as our old '98, and that my memory is correct....

You can order installation instructions from Crutchfield for IIRC $10, even if you didn't order the stereo from them.

I just sent you an email with the directions from memory. If you need anything else, just let me know.
