I don't have an answer but wonder if you have had one yet? There are a series of fasteners under the dash but I don't know if that is what is holding the dash on or not. I am going to find out as soon as I can get some kind of tool to pull them. I don't want to harm the dash. Thanks Joe

I don't know if you are looking to replace your existing radio or not, but Crutchfield (www.crutchfield.com) provides very helpful instructions on how to remove factory stereos in order to replace them with an aftermarket version. The instructions are very clear and geared for your particular make/model. It may not be necessary to remove the entire dash. I'm not sure if they would sell just the instructions, but they do come with your order. If I'm not mistaken, once you have ordered from them, you can often download a PDF file of instructions. .

The radio of a 1997 Cadillac Deville is mounted in place using several screws. Inspecting the middle of the dash will locate all the necessary mounting screws, and removing them will allow the stock radio to slide out of it position.

First you must remove the climate control knobs, then unsnap the cover panel with a screwdriver. Remove the two screw behind the panel and from behind the drink holder. Unsnap the plastic frame from the radio and lift it up to remove. Then remove 4 more screws fro the radio and it will slide out.
