    Hey guys I got a friend who wants to put a headunit into his 97 chevy astro. I just took a quick glance at it but how do I go about removing the factory radio?

    Front Stage- Seas Excels(7") w18nx's with Image Dynamic CD-1v3 minis
    Rear Fill- JL Audio TR690
    Subs- 3x12w6 V1 Subs
    Deadening- 4 rolls of Raamat EG with 6 yards of Ensolite
    Wiring- KnuKonceptz (73lbs of it)
    Monitor- Power Acoustik 700MHR
    Batteries- Kenitic 2000 and Optima Redtop Under the hood with Stinger S200 Relay
    Entertainment- Xbox Running Slayers with 250 gig HD

    There is probably some trim around the radio. Just use a screwdriver, and carefully remove it. And then there should be screws, you take out.

    But im not quite sure, never worked on an astro

    NO NO NO. I have a 97 Astro. The trim goes from the drivers door to the other side of the radio. It just pops off but you will need to move the shifer out of the way. Its kind of a pain to get to piece out of the way but it will move. There are no screws that hold the radio in.

    Ahhh

    Like I said never worked or even looked at an Astro. I just thought mainly everything worked sorta the same way.
