Question about 1997 GMC Sierra K2500
How do i remove the dash to get to the stereo in my 97 cavalier so i can install a different stereo ?
First remove the vent from the middle of dash up by windshield. It has one philips head screw, then has a clip on each side.
Then you need a 7mm. First there are two screws under were the vent you just took out was. One is longer than the other.
Next take the side covers off each side of the dash, these are the sides of the dash were the door panel meets the dash. I believe there was either one or two screws on each side after the cover is popped out.
Next open the glovebox, there are two gold screws up through a hole in the top of the glovebox, they hold the airbag in. Then there are like four more along the edge of the glovebox were the top of the door would meet the dash.
After all those screws are out then you can take the top dash cover out, but your not done yet.
After the top cover is out you will have like four more screws they go straight down right behind the face of the dash. After they are out the rest is clips and unplug the wires for the lights and lighter. After its free remove it,
Now you can take the two or three screws holding the radio out and pull it out. Now just reverse the whole thing and pray for no extra screws or broken tabs.
It takes more time than it is hard, just don't try and rush it or you'll be calling salvage yards for parts. Hope this helps.
