Default Need repair manual for 2001 SLE

Hi everyone. Does anyone know where I can get a repair manual for my 2001 SLE? I have the Haynes one for the Pontiac Bonneville but it doesnt show any of the newer style bodies and accessories. I need to know how to take apart the dash for a new HU and how to take out the rear seats. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

There is a place to buy the Service Manuals but there pricey, I've been watching ebay but so far came up flat. I'm at work or would share the addy...sorry.

I'll post again when I get home on how to remove the trim and rear seat.

To remove the trim:
Lower the tilt steering column to the lowest position and remove the ignition cylinder bezel (turn left).
If you have the DIC remove by prying with a small flat blade screw driver in the lower corner, remove wire connector.
Above the steering column there are two push-in release fasteners, pop them out with a small flat blade.
Now pull the trim plate towards yourself, the will be a large SNAP so dont be suprised
The radio has two clips on either side that you depress and pull the unit straight out. At the back is flat ribbon cable.


To remove the back seat:
First move the front seat as far forward as they will go, then remove the rear bench by pulling straight up at the front then pull out.
Remove the upper trunk trim, then the fasteners and the cable clips from the trunk pass-through release cable, If equipped.
Remove the center seat belt and outer shoulder belt buckle bolts at the bottom of the seat.
Lift the center shoulder belt off of the seat back and store on the rear shelf panel.
Using a straight-bladed screwdriver, insert the screwdriver between the top of the seat back and rear of the shelf panel. (can be tricky)
Push down on the screwdriver in order to release the rear seat back retainers (4 retainers) and pull the seat back away from the back shelf.
Position the rear shoulder belts in order to clear the rear seat back.
Pull the seat away from shelf panel far enough to pull the pass-through release cable through the opening.
Remove the rear seat back.

And there is a link for "repair manuals" on www.helm.com too. Just wait for the intro to finish, or press the skip button, then look in the lower right hand corner.
