2001 Chevy Impala: it came with a factory am/fm stereo..OEM..swap

I just got a 2001...
I just got a 2001 Chevy Impala and it came with a factory am/fm stereo (no cd or cassette). I just bought an OEM radio/cassette/cd off of Ebay for a 2001 Chevy Impala. How do I get the dash apart in order to just swap the parts? Also, will it just use the same plug or do I need a different attachment. Both are OEM parts for the Impala. Thanks.

You can install the radio but it will not work until it is programmed to match the body control module in your car. Each radio is set up to only work in the car it was installed in and has to match the control module in that car because of the theft system. You will need to have the dealer program the unit to match your car when you are done. You may even want to write down all the numbers on the radio in case the dealer needs them for reference. Instructions below. Thanks
