Hi, That procedure is far more complicated than it used to be. You will need to have the Anti-Theft Code in order to get it to play again after removal. I recommend that you obtain a HAYNES Manual from Autozone, O'Reilly"s. Carquest, and the like. The panels you are going to remove are not made of steel and there are parts that WILL break if removed incorrectly. Haynes Manual will give you an exploded view and removal tutorial so that you do not damage anything and have a successful project.

How do you remove stock radio in 1998 nissan pathfinder?

Nissan is not real good at providing instructions for radio replacement. The only instructions in the service manual are for complete removal of the entire dash assembly. From what I can see from the illustrations, (as well as my personal experience with Nissans) there should be a couple of screws at the lower end of the center finish panel. (the part that goes around the radio and A/C - heater controls) After the screws are removed, pull out on the lower end of the panel and the rest of it should simply "snap" out of the dash panel. It is held in with clips. Once the center finish panel is removed you will see the screws that secure the radio.

How do I remove the stock radio from my 2004?

You need to remove the instrument panel bezel to gain access to the radio.

There are two screws above the instruments that need to be removed and another behind the ashtray. Once those screws are removed, you can simply pull gently on the plastic fascia and it will pop off (it is held in place by clips). Do not pull too hard because the emergency flasher button and passenger airbag status indicator will be tethered by their wiring.

Once you pull the bezel away from the dash, you can swing it up out of the way and you will see four screws holding the radio in place. Remove those screws and the radio will slide out.

Disconnect the wiring harness and antenna from the back of the radio for complete removal.

PS ... most stereo shops will do free removal of the old radio and installation of a new radio with a minimum purchase of around $100 or more. That's another option ...

Car radio install

There should be an actual wire harness for radio back in there somewhere, maybe tied up or bundled up, just have to find it, then buy from stereo or automotive supply place, an adapter that will go from factory plug to your other stereo, and it will make installation much, much easier.
