    there are a ton of threads on this...

    1. Use a slim plastic tool to pop out the 3 control climate panel...
    2. Once the climate controls are out you will look into the base of the radio and see 4 10mm bolts (use a socket wrench w. an extension). Remove those 4 bolts....
    3. Use the plastic trim tool to "pop" the top of the radio forward where it meets the dashboard...
    4. Reach your hand in under the radio between where you just removed the bolts and pop it out by lifting up and towards you...
    5. Disconnect the clipped harnesses from the rear of the radio and the hazard lights..

    Thanks for the link. Saw the video but at the beginning the guy looked like he was going to pull out just about everything. Wasn't to sure if he knew what he was doing.
