You must remove the entire dashpad. Remove the fuse panel on the driver's side, there is a screw there. Also remove this panel on the passenger side, screw there too. Then several screws on top holding pad in. Sounds like a lot but not bad.

Better yet. Step by step instructions here. I have to do it also!!

How do you remove the dashboard in a 2000 Chevy Cavalier Z24 to install a radio?

You have to remove the top of the Dash before you start.(bolts located in the access panels on the sides) Then You can remove the vents. any cavalier 2000 and up you will need to purchase a relocation harness to mount the stock deck in the trunk as the air bag control module is built into it. These cost around $150 just for the harness. The other option is to bypass your airbags all together although this is not reccomended for obvious reasons. Other than that it is quite simple to install a deck into these cars (plug and play/ colour matching).

How do you remove the dash on a 2007 Chevy impala to install a new radio?

The dash does not need to come off to install a new radio. The area where the radio is installed has its own panel that can be easily removed. Grab a flat-head screwdriver and pop the cover off (there are 4 pins that grab the panel to the dashboard body). Don't forget to unplug the plug that controls the passenger air bag light before completely removing it.
