    I have a question.

    I am dealing with 2 honda civics both are 96's

    My civic is a 2 Door EX
    My Sisters is a 4 Door LX (i think)

    We both have the stock radios. I have a stock honda CD player.

    NOW I have 2 nice cd players (not important) IM going to give my sister my stock Honda CD player and taking one of the 2 nice ones to put in my car and the other in my dads car (99 Corolla)

    MY CIVIC's factory cd player has a wire going up the dash to my radio.
    My sisters Civic doesn't have a wire coming down from the radio which i figured was because the wire going up my dash is not removable from the stock cd player which means i would have to run that wire up the inside of the dash on my sisters car.

    PROBLEM IS: for the freakin life of me i cannot figure out how to remove the "radio" dash part to remove the stock radio out of my civic to disconnect this wire so i can install it on my sisters civic....so anyone who could provide pics on how to do this would be nice. If i find out how to do that i can do the rest. For the record i have googled this and misleads lead me to something coming up with the "smart" idea to come to a honda forum which would have been my next step.

    first take off the plastic that has the cig lighter hole in it,..then you can see all the srews / bolts thats holding in the stock radio,


    wait a min, im thinking you can just pull the whole thing out climate control vents and all and get to it like that,,its one of the 2 ways i said its been a few years sense i had a ek

    Do either civics have power locks and remote entry? You might want to pay attention to that.

    ok if your putting a after market cd player in, just go to autozone and buy a harness for your civic, it will plug right up, and the harness is about 7 bucks

    so...

    know any good places to get cheap stuff for my car to pimp it out....im talkin like little stuff...nothing serious....stuff like lights for the windshield fluid squirters..or neon lights under the car....stuff like that...nothing to make my car faster or anything....AND on another touch. I would like to say my car is the reason why i love Hondas....im at 199,000+ miles and im getting 34 MPG Highway and around 28-30 City and its a 96. ONE more question...is it true that i should replace the water pump and timing belt once i get to 200,000 miles??
