The Hyundai Accent comes with a factory-equipped stereo radio. If you ever need to remove the radio for repair or replacement, you'll need to deal with the stereo wiring. This simply requires removing the wire harness connectors from the old radio and reconnecting the harness to the correct ports on the new radio. The wire harness contains the ground, power and stereo speaker wiring as well as the radio antenna. Only a few basic tools are needed for removal of the dashboard panel.
