The factory installed radio in the 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport is adequate for many owners. However, if you want to improve the sound quality of your car stereo system, removing this radio and installing an aftermarket radio will typically yield much better sound quality. There are a few steps involved in removing the radio, but the job doesn't require anything more than a screwdriver and a relatively short investment of your time.

Step 1

Pull out the ashtray and remove two Phillips screws from the bracket behind the ashtray. Pull out the bracket.

Step 2

Remove two Phillips screws from each corner of the driver's knee panel -- the panel beneath the steering wheel. Remove the panel.

Step 3

Remove one Phillips screw from the trim panel located below the glove box. Open the glove box and remove a Phillips screw from the left side of the opening.

Step 4

Remove two Phillips screws from under the top edge of the instrument trim panel. Pull out on the passenger side of the panel and remove the trim panel.

Remove four Phillips screws from the perimeter of the radio. Pull the radio out and disconnect it.
