How to Remove the Radio From a 2002 Grand Prix


The 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix is part of the 1997 to 2003 Grand Prix body style. The model went on to receive a major restyling in 2004. The radio and dash setup is the same in all 1997 to 2003 Grand Prix vehicles, therefore removing the radio from the dash is the same on each model. With a few simple tools, expect the radio removal job to take about 15 minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Pliers
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Nylon trim tool
  • Separate the negative cable from the Grand Prix's battery with pliers to prevent electric shock.

  • Push the steering column lever and raise the steering wheel. Look on the bottom-right side of the steering column/radio panel and find the two Phillips screws. Remove them with the screwdriver.

  • Pry along the perimeter of the steering column/radio panel with a nylon trim tool. This detaches the rear clips from the Grand Prix's dash. You can also use a plastic tool, but do not use metal as this would scratch the plastic panel.

  • Grasp the panel and pull it toward you. Move the panel out of the way to have clear access to the radio and its screws.

  • Remove the four Phillips screws from the radio. Pull the radio out and unplug the two connections on the rear.
