    Hi group,

    I've recently purchased a UK spec Hyundai Coupé (2005 facelift model), and
    dissapointed as I was with the factory fit unbranded stereo, I've put a
    clarion cd/mp3 radio in...

    Only - I can't figure out how to fix the damn unit into the car, so it's
    currently just wedged in, and wobbles about.

    How would I go about removing the aluminium effect facia from the car (w/o
    damaging it!) so that I can access the mount to screw the new unit in

    Any help much appreciated!

    Check for screws holding the trim panel in. It's been long enough since
    I've done one of these (and I've done few enough) that I don't remember
    specifically how this one comes off. Check for screws around the ashtray.
    If the console trim meets with the dash trim, you may need to pull the
    console trim and check for screws underneath. If you have blanks in the
    switch area there may be screws behind them (but I don't think so on this
    car). There will be several clips holding the trim onto the dash.

    Hi there - thanks for the reply :)

    I can't seem to find any screws holding this particular panel in. My guess
    is it should just pop off - but I need a blunt knife or something to test..

    Hope I'm right? Any further suggestions?

    You're pretty much on the right track. Just try to be careful. Automakers
    can be pretty ingenious sometimes when it comes to hiding fasteners.
