Through lots of searching I was able to find out how to install my radio. In case it's helpful for anyone else here is what I learned:

This is needed to match up with the wires from the new radio. The above was correct, I saw a ton of different charts all over the web, hard to know what's what out there sometimes. This worked on my 2010 Accent.

Removing the old radio, or the empty trays if there's no radio, is easy. The entire plastic oval shaped area in the dash that surrounds the radio and a few other lights and stuff pops out. Use something thin and strong (I used a bayonette, hehe). Start in lower right corner, doesn't take much force. Once you can get your fingers under it, the rest pops off no problem.

From there just use a screwdriver. In my case the 4 front facing and easily accessible screws came right out. Splicing all the wires together was a major hassle. Worse was trying to get the radio in the slot so it will look good. Mine (Alpine/$150) fit without any special attachments or kits. Just needed to buy some crimp caps, or could have soldered the wires.

In retrospect it may have been worth the $100 to have the dealer do it, but now I have the knowledge :D

OR you could have spent $10 on the wiring harness adaptor from your favourite car audio store and preserved your dash harness integrity. Then theres no research required you match colours from your stereo harness to the adaptor harness and its complete...

I had the wiring harness for the 06 accent.  But now I have a 2010.  Much different harness.  I saw that bloodninja put up a topic with it in there, but I don't know where to order it from.  You guys know?

And alenat, I found yours on Ebay.  Here it is: 2005 Hyundai Accent Wiring Harness

It's a buy it now thing, so you don't have to deal with bids, and it's only $5 with free shipping.

I think I found it.  The 2009 one fits the 2010 one right? If so, I just found it on ebay.

This is it, right? 

It says it fits the 2009 accent, but then it says it just fits the sonata.



Haha.  I'm such an ebay junkie. :D

If the picture is correct, that looks like the one to me.

You're also probably going to want the antenna adapter, unless you want no functioning radio.
