    Remove the glove box insert, and the side brace on the drivers side. The radio should drop down and slide out the passenger side. Maybe think of rebuilding the front speaker at this time if it hasn’t been already.

    ok, any trick about the ant, like is there enough slack to unplug without damage to the wire going to the glass? I also think I will replace the speaker while im at it.

    You can unplug the antenna once you can reach the back of the radio.

    Shouldn’t be hard to unplug that.

    There’s usually a stud or bolt on the back holding it to a bracket too.

    I swap stereos with the console out and the glove box in place.
    But mine is an 80 and the console is different. I’ve never removed the console on an early 2nd gen.

    On my '70, all I have to do is remove the one bolt that holds the bracket and the two front knobs and umplug the wiring. Then it drops out the bottom of the dash, but I don't have a console to work around.
