You dont have to remove the dash, but you do have to remove the dash trim (the part that goes around the radio, heat & AC controls, and all the way over to the other side of the dash)
Then you will see the 3 (I think) screws that hold the radio in

You will also need a adapter kit so it'll fit in the dash, in case you hadnt already gotten one--available at most electronics stores that do installs

i got the adapter kit already. How would I go about removing the trim? does it unscrew somewhere or just pop off?

ok i was successful in removing the trim. I didnt realize it stretched all the way past the steering wheel. I'm gonna remove the deck tonight and put in the cd player. do I need to cut the power going to the deck or can I just pull it out after I unscrew?

no i haven't myself persoanlly, but im having a few of my friends help me who have before. I know to remove the negative connector to the battery, so i might as well disconnect the whole thing. any suggestions on what to do or what to be careful of? I'll try and get some pictures up after im done

You aren't cutting any wires. You'll need to get a harness that adapts the original GM plugs to the the Eclipse plugs.
