Default Help taking out my stereo on my damaged car

Hello, this is my first post and I was wondering if some of you all could help me. About two weeks ago someone t-boned my car and the insurance said it was totaled. My car was my love, my joy, my 1998 Bonneville SE.

Anyways the insurance is giving me $3400 on the car and I'm using some of my additional money to buy another Bonneville (1999 SE) for $4000 because I loved my old one so much and they appear to be the same car mechanically. The only problem is that the new car only has a cassette player! lol

I was wondering how do I take out my old car'* CD player with equalizer (stock) and put it in (hopefully) in my new bonneville?

pull of the dash bezel with your fingers, it is only held on by clips.. then there are 4 screws holding the radio in.. the new stereo will just be plug and play

I think the 4th screw is the "loose one". Sorry, couldn't help myself on that one.
