Do you mean how to physically install the radio in the kit? Or how to install the kit in the dash? The kit should have come with instructions, I'm pretty sure mine did. Installing the kit is identical to installing the stock radio, just the only bolts you have to put in are the ones on top. Installing the HU is no different from another kit. I know when I had my indash I had to use the ISO mount brackets so the screen had enough room to flip out. With the DIN cage it held the radio too far in, and the screen would hit the top before opening all the way.

That's simple, once you have taken the stock radio out it will make sense. The kit is designed to mount exactly like the stock radio. Except I think there are two bolts you have to take out of the HU on the bottom that aren't needed to install the kit. Basically once you have the radio installed in the kit, you just line the kit up in the hole and drop it in place. You have to press the bottom in until the snaps in and is flush with the dash, then install the three bolts you took out of thetop of the stock radio in the same location on the kit.

THIS guide doesn't seem to be to bad.
