According to my Haynes manual all you have to do to get at the stereo is remove the center bezel. that is the plastic panel covering the area around the stereo and the climate controls. just grip the plastic between the radio and the climate control panel and pull. make sure to unplug the electrical connector for the courtesy light before you fully remove the bezel.
