Question Removing factory radio

I have an 04 Envoy and I just purchased a Pioneer AVIC-D3 head unit. I wanted to know, how do I remove the factory radio? And no, it does not have Bose or DVD. Is there also special adapters to make the head unit work? Your help would be very helpful to me.

Start under the drivers side dash. 2 screws bottom then 2 on top. remove that pannel. now remove the 2 screws that you just exposed. look at speedometer there are 2 screws above it. Drop the Tilt steering wheel down al the way. down by the 12v power outlets remove 1 screw. Place parking brake on. turn key so you can put the transmission in 1st gear (this gives you some room to work). Now start pulling on the dash bottom right by the 12v power outlets working up and left. you will need to unplug the 2 12v outlets connectors. then the wiper switch and the 4wd is you have 4wd. then al the way to the left disconnect the headlight switch. after all thats out of the way there are 3 screws holding radio in and pull it out disconnect antenna and 2 connectors on the radio.

There's a sticky at the top with the diagrams.

On the envoy it looks a lot easier then the trailblazer since you don't have to drop the knee panel and remove the headlight switch and fight with the steering wheel.

I had the panel out where the radio is and I had to remove console because there is two screws below outlets behind the center console.

Removing the console fascia is rather easy. Reinstalling it is a major fargon pain in the azz.
