Question about 2002 Chevrolet Tracker
Glad I didn't read this page before I replaced my stereo.
Remove stereo fascia with three screws - 1 at the top, two on each side of ash tray. Remove 4 screws holding in stereo. Done - takes about 3 minutes.

SOURCE: stereo removal
Removing the stereo requires disassembling the dashboard. This is done on purpose by the company to deter stereo theives. The process is the same on all CRV's from 1999 thru 2003, and is described on this page:

First remove the vent from the middle of dash up by windshield. It has one philips head screw, then has a clip on each side.
Then you need a 7mm. First there are two screws under were the vent you just took out was. One is longer than the other.
Next take the side covers off each side of the dash, these are the sides of the dash were the door panel meets the dash. I believe there was either one or two screws on each side after the cover is popped out.
Next open the glovebox, there are two gold screws up through a hole in the top of the glovebox, they hold the airbag in. Then there are like four more along the edge of the glovebox were the top of the door would meet the dash.
After all those screws are out then you can take the top dash cover out, but your not done yet.
After the top cover is out you will have like four more screws they go straight down right behind the face of the dash. After they are out the rest is clips and unplug the wires for the lights and lighter. After its free remove it,
Now you can take the two or three screws holding the radio out and pull it out. Now just reverse the whole thing and pray for no extra screws or broken tabs.
It takes more time than it is hard, just don't try and rush it or you'll be calling salvage yards for parts. Hope this helps.

DO NOT take it out until you are completely sure on what to do...i have
an 02 malibu and removed the radio on the 29th of august and now my car
still doesn't run...it's going to the chevy garage at the end of the
week...i'll get an update...let me know if u figure something out!
Well I will tell you because I taken Mine out about 6 times and nothing has ever happened. Take the plastic around the ignition switch off be careful not to brake plastic, then prey the plastic away from radio then u while see the bolts to take radio out. Before you do anything like this though UNHOOK THE BATTERY

Paul is right you can go to radio shack or autozone schucks or any parts store and ask for the removal tool it cost $20.00 tops. Trust me you don't want to undo the dash as the air bag could detonate if you shorted the two wires that can control it and it could kill you.

Testimonial: "Thank you! I didn't even think about the safety aspect of removing the dash. Better leave this to the pros!"
