you might need to grab a 03-05 dash piece to fit a cd player because of the rounded corners

all you should need is the wire harness unless your going to hard wire it, the lc/lc2 both have standard DIN size decks, and most decks have holes on the sides of them for screws that you can actually use the stock brackets that hold in the factory deck.

on my friends LC, it had a DIN size radio, but the center dash piece had rounded corners that didnt allow a regular deck. He had to Dremel the corners square. I know on the LC2 that i have, hyundai went to regular squared opening so it would be a direct swap.

I've managed to fit 2 regular DIN decks in my 02 accent and never had a problem with the corners, it's just tight. You'll need the piece that fits around the head unit to bolt it into the dash (i forget what that's called, i think just an install kit) and then you'll want to get the wiring harness for it.

In the pop out cupholders of the centre bezel there are 2 screws. Unscrew those and with a flathead pop the centre piece out. The HVAC unit is still connected by all the metal rods so you can either word around that, or remove them and fully remove that centre piece.

easy as this if you want it to look good get a kit.
just taking off the front face of the dash is a bitch because its connected to everything it is touching.

tho i never had a problem with the rounded courners

Default Car deck sizes

Hi, I just bought this really nice 2002 Accent GSI and I would like to customize it a bit, starting with a new audio deck.
I'm no mechanic and I was wondering if anyone knew what size decks I should be looking at if I want a perfect fit.

Thank you!!

Kari
