    If you have things like onstar or steering wheel controls, installing an aftermarket head unit can get pretty complicated. Many of the auto manufacturers now insist on routing many of the cars features through the head unit that you will lose if you replace it. Some of the adapters to make everything work together can get expensive as well.

    Your best bet for information would be a Cobalt specific forum. Crutchfield provides pretty solid installation instructions if you buy through them.

    Before you go and remove the old unit, make sure that you buy the wire adapters to match the new unit output wire harness with the old car wire harness. The last thing you want to do is go and start cutting wires and adding all sorts of connectors. About $15 at car audio install places.

    The old unit probably has a big nut holding it in at the rear or bottom of the unit (unless it is held in by 4 bolts on the sides.)

    What type of car?
