Default How do I remove the radio trim (08 Avalanche)

OK, I know it's not a tahoe (I owned a 97 Tahoe for ten years til trading up for new). I bought an I-pod adapter controller to allow the stock radio to control the I-pod but when I went to install it, realized I don't know how to get to the radio to get the thing out to plug in the new wires! I'm sure it's something very easy, but since it's a brand new truck, I want to be sure what I'm doing before trying to pry something that might not be pryable! Any help will be much appreciated.

very gently pry the trim ring off that surrounds the radio and hvac controls then its pretty straight forwars remove 7mm bolts. also the ring is clipped in pretty tight. so be careful

Should be like the tahoe. I had mine out yesterday. You need to use somethins that will not mar the dash. I used a plastic puddy knife. Slide it in the seam and pry out. It is tight and feels like it may break but it will not. It is held in by several clips.

Thanks guys! That's what I figured, but without a manual I didn't want to "go for it" and mess up a brand new piece.
