  • 1999 Hyundai Elantra Wagon


    My mother has a 1999 Hyundai Elantra wagon, I spent the last 2 hours trying to remove the dash so I can take the radio out. I can see that the radio is held in with 4 screws, however the dash bezel will not come lose.

    I am hoping that someone can shine some lite on this for me and tell me how to remove the dash trim around the radio.

    Thank you in advance

    from here:

    Dash Fascia Removal
    The first step is to remove the dash fascia, the covering that surrounds the stereo head unit. To do this, move the tilt steering wheel all the way down and move the shift lever back. Next, disconnect the negative battery terminal. Then remove the ash tray and the two Phillips head screws behind it, as well as the two Phillips head screws in the instrument cluster bezel just above the speedometer and tachometer. With those four screws removed, the only thing holding in the dash fascia is a series of pop fasteners. Starting from the ash tray end, pull the fascia out away from the dash. The fasteners will pop as you pull the fascia. Work your way along the fascia from the ash tray end to the end near the door, until the fascia is loose. Next, reach behind the fascia and disconnect all the electrical connectors including cigarette lighter, aux power outlet, clock, hazard switch, Passenger Air Bag Off indicator, dimmer, Traction Control switch, and any other electrical connectors. Each connector has a tab that needs to be pushed in order to release the connector. This part of the job is the most potentially frustrating if you have no prior experience. The first time it took me over a half hour; the second time took just a few minutes. Here is a link for directions for this from another site.

      That's for a 2001-2006. Here's the one for a 1999. is your friend.

      2. Remove the shift lever boot and the rheostat assembly using a (-) driver.

      3. Remove the center facia panel mounting screws. (2EA)

      4. Disconnect the heater control cable and connectors (6EA), and then remove the center facia panel.

      5. Remove the audio mounting screws (4EA) and remove the audio.

      6. Installation is the reverse order of removal procedure.
