It is really easy to do. If you have a sunglasses holder (or a compartment overhead) open it and remove the 2 screws in the compartment. That should be it, from there just gently pull the assembly away from the roof, there are 2-4 clips holding the assembly in place. From there remove the main wiring harness and you are good to go. I have removal instructions with pics at www.autoclockrepair.com

I once took every single piece of it apart before figuring out that it was indeed 4 bolts. Doh! The two little storage compartments, and the cup holders, just pop out. Two bolts go to the dash, behind the storage bins, and two are under the cup holders. You'll need an extension to get to them. After that it won't see like it'll budge, but there is a big metal clip that it slides into, at the back, on the floor under it. It rusts, so you gotta get low on the console and pull it STRAIGHT BACK.
Remove the package tray and cup holders by grasping and pulling out by hand. There is a wiring block located directly under the stereo with a bolt holding it in place. Loosen the bolt until you can unplug the harness. There are two gold colored bolts on either side of where the wiring block was, remove these. Now if you move back until you are at the front edge of the armrest and look straight down you will see two more bolts that are exactly the size and color of the first two, remove them (you may need to grab them with needle nose pliers after they are loose to get them completely out of there) . This is the tricky part. You have to get in the back seat and pull the console straight back and slightly upward to release the two metal "fingers" that are holding the rear of the console to the floor. These fingers slide into a plate that is bolted to the floor that has two slots in it. DO NOT be shy when you are pulling the console to release these. Trust me, it takes some effort. When you get that released, just pull the whole console out through the rear seat, wiring and all. When you replace the console just reverse this procedure but make sure you don't get hung up where those four bolts go in as you are sliding the console forward and back into place. Hope this helps. Good luck!
