I'm not sure how to bypass the amplifier, but it is located behind the glove box. There are two harnesses that connect it to the radio. The bottom harness is removed by squeezing the ears and pulling off. The upper harness' release is on the rear facing side and is more difficult to operate. I used a small box-end wrench to take off the mounting bracket, then you can pull the amplifier out and turn it to see the clip.

What will happen to the voltage gain of the amplifier circuit when you remove the bypass capacitor?

If you remove the supply bypass capacitor, chances are the amplifier just won't work. If you remove the emitter bypass capacitor of the amplifier, DC gain remains unaffected while AC gain increases within the passband. Note though, that the passband is affected by removing/adding the emitter bypass capacitor. Hope this helps :)
