Hyundai's Tucson is a small, front-wheel drive SUV. Due to Hyundai's partnership with Kia, it shares most of its components with the Kia Sportage. All Tucson models come standard with a AM/FM CD player. Some models have multi-disc capability. If you want to remove your Tucson's radio to install a new one, remember to acquire the correct mounting kit and aftermarket-wiring harness adaptor.

  1. 1

    Unhook the negative battery cable (--) with your pliers. This prevents shock when touching the electrical-wiring components.

  2. 2

    Pry off the small cap on the bottom of the shift knob (the cap faces the back seat). Behind the cap, you'll see two Phillips-head screws. Remove them and lift the shift knob from the rod.

  3. 3

    Detach the shift-gate panel from around the shift knob. Use a flathead screwdriver or an automotive-pry tool to remove it. Lift the shift-gate panel up and over the shift rod. Set it to the side.

  4. 4

    Remove the 10 Phillips-head screws from the metal bracket beneath the shift-gate panel. With the screws removed, pull the bracket backward and lift it out of the console.

  5. 5

    Remove the Phillips-head screw from the bottom portion of the radio-console panel. This screw is in the centre, beneath the ashtray and air-conditioning controls.

  6. 6

    Grasp the radio-console panel. Firmly pull it away from the dash to remove it. Remove the four Phillips-head screws securing the radio to its mount. Pull the radio out. Unplug the harness and antenna cable.
