Default Ripping things appart!

Hello everyone, my name is Clark and I just joined
this site today, so please bear with me and my very
noob and stupid questions.

I just got my first car about a month ago, it is an
05 PT Cruiser non turbo.

I really want to make it up all nice, I have already
put in a performance air intake system and plan
on adding a Helix Tower soon.

As for car audio I put in two Pioneer 6x8" 4-ways
in the very back, they fit in absolutely perfect.
For the doors I put in Pioneer 6 1/2" which was
a big mistake, they where just to small to fit in
so I ended up cutting off the brackets of the
factory speakers and gluing the Pioneers to
the brackets, worked real well, but will be putting
in the oversized 6 3/4" ones eventually.

The head unit that I ordered was on back order for
a month so I finely just ordered a different one
a Pioneer DEH-P4900IB, I love Pioneer they have
never let me down.

Anyway, I have been looking at the front dash
where the head unit goes and I do not see a
way to get the dash off, with out scratching
something anyway, just wondering if you could
give me some advise on how to take the old
unit out and put the new one in without ripping
things apart.

Also I bought some 3 1/2" speakers for the front
any idea how to get that giant piece of plastic
off without scratching things to pieces?

Any information you can give me would be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks, and I plan on spending a lot of time on
here! lol

Can't help with the speakers, but to get at the radio: very gently pry out the plate that has the 4 window switches in it. Disconnect the wiring from the back of the switches and set the plate down. Look inside the square hole and you'll see one phillips head screw. Take that screw out. Take off the 4 round knobs that adjust the air-conditioning. Now GENTLY pry all around the edges of the whole panal that fits around the vents/radio/controls. It will start to come loose and come off towards you. Once that's off, you have access to the radio and the screws that hold it in.

Thank you so much for your help, I have been searching the web
endlessly trying to find that information with no avail!
Can't wait to get the new head unit in!
Thanks again, you are a life saver!

Cheers.
Clark
