The many different design interiors make it
impossible to list each fastener location. The trim panels that must be
removed are held in place by screws and clips. These locations vary from
model to model. After removal of all the fasteners that you are aware
of, if the trim panel is still firmly attached, you probably missed a
hidden fastener. If this happens, gently and carefully pry the area
looking for the location that doesn't flex. The location that does flex
is where you'll find the fastener(s) you missed. Screws and retainers
are usually hidden. Handle trim, reflectors, light lenses and other
plastic pieces usually cover the main retaining screws. Take great care
with the plastic trim panels. Plastic trim panels are usually very hard
plastic and extremely easy to crack. The following steps can be used to
guide you through the removal and installation of the trim panels, but
you may need to alter these steps to your specific needs.

screws are usually hidden, so be sure to look carefully to make sure you
don't miss any.After all of the trim panel retaining screws are removed, slide a
suitable trim panel removal tool between the door panel and door
perimeter to carefully disengage all of the trim panel retaining
buttons. Make sure to position the tool close to the fastener, or the
trim panel may be damaged.

*It's a bit tricky but not difficult, if you know how the dash in the Park Avenue is put together. But before you do anything, safety first. *Disconnect the negative cable from the battery before doing any electrical work on a car. This prevents shorting out your cars electrical system.
*If you own the 90 -91 Park Avenue model, simply pull off the decorative trim away from the radio to expose the torq screws that hold the radio into the dash. You will need a torq screwdriver of the right size to remove the radio. Available from your local autoparts store.
*If you own the 91-92 model, it's a whole different ball game. This since the dash is much more tightly compacted. It's a combination of a snap together assembly and Torq screws. The dash is held together in columns or sections.
*The torq screws on these models are hidden behind the heater vents in the upper dash. First pry the wooden trim (Which surrounds the climate control module) on the bottom of the dash off, gently but firmly until it comes free, exposing the Torq screws on the lower dash. Remove the heater vents (hiding the upper screws ) by popping them out with a straight blade screw driver. Then remove all Torq screws visible to the eye, only from the column that is holding is holding the radio in place.
*You will then be able to remove the black colored plastic off the dash to expose the radio. (Use care when removing the lower dash column as some climate control and airbag sensors might be embedded).
*Remove all Torq screws holding the radio in place, (and keep track of all screws) pull the radio out of the dash, and disconnect electrical connectors. If you'll be replacing the stock radio with a non factory radio, make sure all electrical connection watch up, since security feature in the radio are integrated into the radio. (some of these effect basic function on your vehicle like the headlights) If you will be reinstalling the stock radio, you will have to have it unlocked by the dealership. The DelcoLoc system will now think the radio is stolen, because of it's internal security features. Installation is the reverse of removal.
check if there a small hole in each side of the radio, insert a small screw driver in each hole then pull the radio. If no holes , check you dash if there a knobs for a/c remove the knobs there is a nuts hidden under it.
