I have a 97 corolla as well, and i've changed the radio out several times on my own. if you take a small screwdriver and stick it in between the panel that goes around the around the area where the radio is, u should be able to pry it off relatively easy. just be sure to remove the sliders off the AC controls before you do. after you pop that panel off, you just have to disconnect the wiring harnesses going to the clock, hazard lights, rear defroster, and AC button. the radio is bolted in there with a mounting bracket, so you'll have to unscrew that as well. you'll need to unscrew that bracket from the radio you have in there, and mount it to the one you wanna install....hopefully this helps you out. it sounds harder than it really is.

Toyota Corolla has been around long enough that many owners find
themselves needing to replace the factory stereo. Installing a new
stereo in the Toyota Corolla gives improved sound and updated
features. Swapping out the stereo in the Toyota Corolla takes basic
tools and less than an hour. This article covers models from 1990 to
the hood and remove the negative battery cable from the terminal.
Apply the parking brake and place the car
> Remove the trim from
around the stereo by prying with your fingers at one corner. Some
early models have two screws at the top of the trim piece to remove
first. Allow the trim to hang on the drivers side of the dash if
it's connected to the cigarette lighter.
> Locate and remove the
four screws holding the stereo in place. Pull the radio out of the
dash and disconnect the wires from the back of the head unit.
> Connect the wiring
harness adaptor to the original harness and let it hang from the
dash. Slide the new stereo into the Toyota radio mounting kit, which
is a thin metal cover and secure it per the manufacturer's
instructions. Most adaptors have screws to hold the stereo in place,
however some have clips, which engage automatically. >Plug the wiring harness
adaptor and antenna wire into the back of the new head unit and push
the entire assembly into the dash. Reconnect the negative battery
cable and turn the radio on.
> Ensure all of the stereo
controls and speakers are working. Secure the radio in the dash with
the original four screws and replace the trim.
I understand you remove the panel and then for a
1990, it has a handle and you simply pull it straight out.
