Slowly pull the plastic, I start at the farthest point away from the HU. (near the driver door). just pull it out.

the radio is 3 screws.

i think you said something about a head unit try these two

this one is if you want to buy a cheap but good cd player

and this one is for if you want a good,but a little more expensive one, and i am pretty sure it fits right in with a little tweeks
http://www.cardomain.com/item/PIODEH1700
i have the one above in my 92 bonne and the guy who owned it before put it in (so i dont remeber how to do it (forgget full me) and i dont think you will need a mounting kit unless you buy the cheap one shown above

you will need a wiring harness

how much are you willing to spend on a headunit?

that will determine what range of products you look at.
