. . . but I can help you with taking your dash apart to get it out. . .


2.) To remove the dash:

1. - There should be 2 auxilliary cigarette lighter plugs under the dash near the shifter. On each side of that plastic panel there is what looks like a plastic rivet. Take a small sharp tool, and gently press on the center of those "rivets". They'll snap loose and you can pull them out. This will allow you to remove that lower panel. Once the panel is loose - reach back and disconnect the 2 aux cigarette lighter plugs.

2. - Pull all the knobs and switch ends off of your Heat/AC panel.

3. - carefully pull the plastic cover off that is behind the knobs. You may need to use a knife or screw driver to get it to pop loose, but be careful not to break it. (this is the piece that has the Red/Blue circle, and the
"LO - * - * - HI" etc.)

4. - Behind that plastic cover are 2 screws, and there is a 3rd screw to the lower right where the Aux. Cigarette Lighter Plug panel was - but toward the passenger side.

5. - Remove those 3 screws, and firmly pull on the dash panel. Once it's loose disconnect the keyed switch that allows you to arm/disarm the passenger air bag.

Now the dash is removed, and you're all set!

You've got to remove the STEERING WHEEL AND COLUMN to swap out the head unit???? Geeez! :eek:
Uh, all you need are steps five and six. Use that thing between your ears.
