You will need to remove the dash piece over the steering wheel and the piece over the passenger glove box to remove the center bezel. You will also have to remove the center air vents to reach the two screws on top and there are two more screws on bottom.

Its a PITA.

Come on its not that bad. A little soft touch with a screwdriver and some patience gets it done. Door panel tools are better. Plastic bone tools that dont mark are best. You can pop the passenger side easy and pry out the dash bezel enough to snake the radio out. Be careful, I scratched the radio trim on my shifter cause I was in a hurry

make sure you use a flat head and try to pry it very carefully so you dont damage your actual dash
