Yes you do. First you remove the plastic molding that is by the front windshield defroster. It prys out w/ a flat screw driver (carefully)
Under you will see 3 or 2 screws that unscrew.. also there is 1 screw when you remove the ashtray under your ac/heater controls. When those are removed that piece pulls out just like the top one you just removed.
Next open the glove box and stick your hands behind it.. you should find a big cable wrapped in foam.. this should be able to get disconnected into 2 separate cables.. thats the antenna and you will need to pull it off to get some slack.
Remove the front few bolts that hold the stereo it self..
After that there should be a anti theft bracket behind the radio that is tied to the cd player and also 2 bolts to the chassis right by the window defroster.. thats a btch to remove.. for mine i first removed it from the body to get some slack and then disconnected the cables from the radio and at last removed it from the back of the cd player.
