Default Replacing radio with another stock radio

I fried the CD mechanical portion of the single-CD radio in my 2007 Saturn Vue with a voltage surge when the starter went out. Now the radio works fine, CD not so much.

I have a stock radio unit from a salvaged Saturn Vue of the same year. Can I get the old radio out without removing half the dashboard?

Factory radios need to be unlocked by a dealership before they can be matched with a different BCU. Its a security feature for these highly sought after radios

I've removed the radios before. Its not too bad. The trim has to come off and like with any car its a careful balance between pulling the panel away from the click holder and breaking it into piece.

With all the great radios out there cheap (with bluetooth, video, etc) why would you use a factory radio?

Robert,
I'm using a factory radio because I'm selling the car. I bought a salvage radio for $30, waranteed for 90 days. So I don't want to break any trim pieces prior to the sale by trying the wrong way to get the radio out.
