I searched on the Metra website, and if you search for 2008 Hyundai Accent, you won't find the right harnesses for your radio IF you have the stock XM radio installed like I do.
BUT if you search for 2009 Hyundai Accent (as recommended by my local audio specialist), you will find the following 2 things.

I'm not 100% about the first harness, but the 2nd one (the antenna harness) looks like exactly what we need to make our antenna work with our aftermarket radios!!!!

Please refer to the pictures I took in this thread to see what the car's harnesses look like in a 2008 Hyundai Accent SE with stock XM Radio.

YES!!!!! THESE ARE THE RIGHT HARNESSES! WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You don't have to worry about the Blue Green Yellow plugs.. those are just for the Stock radio to be able to use the XM Radio.

You just have to plug the Brown and Gray plugs into the harness!

In summary, the parts needed for Aftermarket Radio Installation in a 2008/2009 Hyundai Accent with stock XM Radio, are the following Metra parts:

40-KI11 = Antenna Adapter ($18)
99-7321 = Radio Dash Mounting Kit ($15)
70-7303 = Radio Harness Adapter ($15)
-----
Total = $48 (I already had the SmartCable adapter to JVC radios, so I didn't need to buy that :D)
NOTE: All of the pieces are plug and play! No soldering or taping or anything required :D


I'm so excited... after MONTHS and MONTHS of waiting, the wait finally paid off and now my radio will work!!!! I just have to wait for the antenna adapter to arrive (special order from installer.com). I will post pictures when I finally get it all put back together :D:D:D


UPDATE: This is what it looks like when connected to your car's harnesses (the Brown and Gray plugs) :)

The 99-7321 Radio Dash Mounting Kit is VERY NICE quality! Not flimsy plastic, but very firm, rigid plastic. It's AWESOME. Perfect fit, the radio doesn't jiggle at all, and it looks like the car was made with it there. Gorgeous.

The red plug didn't come with the Metra package. Maybe that was the AM radio? Probably, since I can't get AM radio anymore (who the heck listens to that anyway...)

that metra kit is a decent looking one... :thumbsup: what brand is the bad looking one, is that the scosche?
Yep, the Scosche one was the first one I tried and it was seriously as flimsy as a cheap plastic spatula... that's a terrible comparison, I know, but it was just as flexible. I thought I was gonna break the Scosche the second I touched it. The Metra one ROCKS.

I got mine from Installer.com. It shipped pretty quickly too. It's $15, which is awesome considering I originally bought the Scosche one for $20 and this one is superior in every way.

PS - READ THE INSTRUCTIONS before installing it! You have to cut (i used a mini-hacksaw) 2 small pieces off, but the instructions are VERY clear. Just do yourself a favor and don't just start cutting stuff off :thumbsup:

Hope that helps!
