You need to remove the plastics around the radio area, they simply pop off. Unhook the plugs connecting the buttons. Then you'll have access to the radio, they are simply bolted in. Once you remove the bolts, there's a harness that plugs into the back of the unit. Also note that the SC has an amplified system, meaning you can't just swap the radio unit out, you'll need to change the amplifier as well. Depending on the year of your SC, you'll probably need to change the speakers as well. Most likely the amp you'll be putting will have more power than the stock unit and will likely blow them out.

Remove factory radio


Must have special U-shaped tool to release latch on both sides of radio. Tools are sold in sets as it requires one on both sides of radio. Insert tool about a half inch and the slightly push towards outside of stereo to remove. A little tricky for first timers

Replace factory radio on 2002 yukon xl


all you gotta do is carfully pry the dash panel off (prying from the far left end is easiest) completely remove panel. then there are 2 clips that hold the factory sterio in place. push on the both clips while pulling the radio out. simply disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the radio. using an adapter avaliable at your local radio shop (scosche p/n gm02, mdarb and gm1483b) wiring harness, dash install kit, and antenna adapter. then simply match the colors on the new radio's harness to the adapter harness, crimping each connection with a "but plug". then simply follow the instructions included with the dash install kit to assemble the kit.connect the antenna adapter to radio, plug in all cables. test to see if everything works properly before the final install. install sterio into dash install kit, re installing kit where origional radio was. then simply put the panel back in its place by firmly pushing on it untill it snaps into place. then enjoy your new radio!
