Default Need help or wiring diagram for 98 Civic stereo

I need a wiring diagram for the stock radio in a 1998 honda civic hatchback dx. I recently bought a new headunit and I need to depin/repin the new connectors. Unless someone else knows an easier way to do this.

This is my first time changing a headunit on any vehicle amazingly. hah.

Both connectors are NOT the same either.

....so you bought an aftermarket headunit or a stock one? If it's an aftermarket, get one of those radio harness (Metra) from your local Walmart. If you're trying to install a factory Honda/Acura radio, Metra has car harness wires as well....
DO NOT CUT THE FACTORY RADIO PLUG . You will regret it later.

It's an aftermarket one. Specifically a Sony GT250MP, the connectors are different clips. So I was wondering do I depin the old one and repin it into the new plug or am I supposed to get an adapter for them to connect? I just realized that the two connectors are probably using different size metal clips to connect within the clip. Aw ****. I'll check out walmart haha.

Ya, I guess I'll have to do that or hit up Fry's. Walmart didn't have the right one, only for BOSE headunits. Wish this wasn't so stupid, gotta make **** more plug & play.

DO NOT cut or de-pin anything. I've been using these for 15+ years.

OK here goes... 98 Civic, removed radio, took radio apart, desoldered "incremental mechanical rotary encoder"...pot was so much easier to refer to a volume control back in the day!
Five pins. Two pins (momentary on/off) one side, Three pins opposite side + two anchor pins middle. ALPS & JAPAN only words stamped backside of switch. Circuit board has VR401 where that part goes to but no part #. Where/Who can I talk to to obtain this little bit of "hell" LesPaul

Before the eyelids close...could someone post wiring schematic (the guts...inside) for AM/FM 98 Civic. Hope voltage/amp max loads are included for the volume control (i.m.r. encoder) Thanks...Les Paul

Last year, I did cut and soldered to put Pioneer in. It's very hard work take an hour to done this job. Get the harness is the best way.
