Like Raptor said

1.Remove Trim piece
You will see 4 #7 bolts I believe
2.Remove Bolts, Radio now slides out.
3.Slide radio out to expose Antenna and radio Wire Harness
4. Remove both, Radio now exits vehicle (How Ever you see fit)

Install New Harness
Install New Antenna Adapter

Run those through the New Trim piece
Plug them into Radio
Carefully place everything back together.


Now remember if you are installing amp, You will need to grab the Blue wire. Remove both Drivers and Passengers side door Trims.

Run Power from Battery and remote Wire Blue Wire On the Passenger side.
Run RCA'* from Head Unit to Amp on Drivers Side. (You can tape everything together Looks mostly) But you will never see it, just helps when you are reinstalling everything.

In the trunk you know have (Power) (Ground) (Remote) On the Right and RCA'* On the Left.

Plug all that into your Amp then RCA'* and Remote (Bluewire to Head Unit, Power to the Battery, And a Ground from the Amp to the Body..

You now have tunes.

what I need to know is how to remove the trim piece properly. I really don't want to end up snapping it and breaking it.

Start at the bottom, then around the right side to the top, Keeping the wheel lowered if you are gentle it should be good.
