you need to remove the whole center dash panel. i know this because i have an 85 celebrity. you first must open glove box and remove by pressing on the tab at the bottom of glove box. then reach up behind dash panel and remove 4 speed nuts. second remove cig. lighter and headlight switch. then on both sides of the center dash panel there are two little vents about an inch wide by about 6 inches tall these just pop out, then remove the 4 screws holding it in, two on each side. there will be some wires attached to the dash panel depending on the type of accesories your car has. tilt your steering wheel down to help in removing dash panel. then you should be able to remove the radio.

How do you replace the radio in a 1984 Chevy Celebrity?

I actually own a 1984 Chevy celebrity and it took me 8 hours to take the dash apart, install the radio and put it back together again. Then, my radio stopped working after 2 weeks. If you want to take on this task, you will need to start by removing the screws from inside of the glove box. My advice: just don't. If you are half as stubborn as me, you will not listen, but you have been warned.
