Default I-Pod Hook-Up?

I have a 2002 Bonneville SE and I'm looking to hook up a IPOD adapter. I purchased a FM transmitter and that sucks. As you all know the stereo does not have a cassette player,
just the CD player, so I can't listen to the ipod with the casette adapter thingy-ma-jig which would be fine cause the sound is pretty good.It does have a "aux" button and nothing is
hooked up to that such as a dvd player or a multi cd changer in the trunk. So i'm left with the choice of trying to hook up a cable to an aux output in the back of the radio.
My question(*) is this:

1. Does the radio have an output in the rear and what type of output is it? Is it a rca or one of those multi-pin connectors?
2. Can I get to the rear of the radio by unscrewing the panel under the glove compartment?
3. There are some connections in the trunk but they seem to only be for the speakers. Is there a way to hook up an adapter there and run the cable to the front of the car?
Thanks for all your help, first time poster.

You can't hook up an iPod directly to the radio/headunit. The way you take it out though is that you just pull all of the trim off that is around the headunit.. You'll find out that it is a big piece of trim. There is a guide somewhere on this website I think. But once you get that trim off you just push in some metal tabs connected to the headunit and slide it out. There is nothing back there to connect an iPod too though. I don't know about connecting your iPod to the aux in the back of the car. But I don't think you can do that.
