Default 2005 Dodge Neon SE Install

I just ordered the Wired FM Mod from TSS and I'm about to order the actual radio (Starmate 4 with Car Kit)... However, I don't know how to remove the factory radio in order to get to the antenna jack and my searches only lead me to pictures of a finished install on a 2001 Dodge Neon and the closest search on Google brought me to a site demanding $5.00 for a plan on how to remove a radio on a 2002 Dodge Neon.

Does anyone know how to remove the factory radio?

P.S. I also noticed that the guy with the 2001 Neon mentioned that the Wired FM Mod won't work without a special adapter http://www.siriusbackstage.com/forum...ght=Dodge+Neon

Does anyone know if this is still the case? or has Dodge switched back to a standard connection? If not, does anyone know what this special adapter is called and where I can buy one?

Any help is greatly appreciated as I'm trying to get SIRIUS before the Jan 31st deadline.

My radio looks like this:

Then you'll need get the four screws off holding the radio in. Pull the radio out and the antenna input will be on the back.

Ha,

I have basically the same car.

Removing the radio is a 2-3 minute deal.

The Vents at the top Pop Out and unscrew the screws behind them, then pop out the heat controls, etc and unscrew the radio. Ok maybe 1 minute.

The Car will need an FM Antenna Adapter though.

Do you sell this adapter? or do you know what it's called so I can get one? I live in Rural Alaska so my options of picking up a part like this are very limited.
