Default Head unit wiring

Hey guys & gals, well some crack heads broke into my ek last night and ripped the radio clean out the dash! Thats all they managed 2 grab but they got it good. They just yanked until it came out. Now my question is the wires behind the radio are all ripped (no clip it came out with the radio), so how do i put a new radio in now? do i gotta change my wiring harness or could i get a clip out another civic strip and re-sodder wires together? any advice people besides thieves are gay!

theirs a guy selling the extension to the radio harness with the clip on ebay for like 10 bucks. I bought mine from him because my car didnt have the clip and i wanted to clean up under my dash. You can probably get the clip cheaper at a junkyard or just direct connect your radio which is how mine was just not as clean.

by hard wiring they mean if your harness from your car is hacked(aka plug is missing) you just wire the radio directly to your car. no plugs.

its easy to hardwire as long as you have the diagram. I just did my deck lastnight, I had same issue, but I bought the car like that, glad it wasn't me that had my shit rocked. I've had shit stolen in the past, worst part is I know who did it, and he knows I know..little SOB moved 5 provinces away, lucky for him or I would have installed the deck he stole out of my civic in his rectum, solder and all!!

Anyways, when i did mine there was 3 wires I didn't need, not too sure wtf they do, there was 2 ground, I only hooked one up to the deck, and there was these 2 little red wires with black slashes, super thin like 22 gauge or something that had no purpose on a cd player, I think they may have been left over for one of those fantastic honda equalizers :P Front speakers are easy to figure out, the harness wires change colour at the doors, theres a plastic gromet with a plug, the wires coming from the car to the door will be the right colours you need to hook up, the back ones are more difficult because you sometimes have to trace the wires from the speaker or do trial and error and play a cd while making educated guesses...ground constant and accessory wires are the easiest...good luck!
