SOURCE: removal of radio in 2003
At least on the European model I know how to do!
Remove the glove compartment. Then try to push the plate around the gear stick out from behind. It's not fixed with any screws. You can also use something really thin and try to bend it out from the front bit by bit but it's easy to scratch something. If you remove the connectors, this plate can be rotated to the side for better access.
This step is crucial to to see what is behind.
When the plate is loose you can see behind, two metal brackets that hold the centre of the dashbord to the dashboard frame. Loosen those screws from the side(from the glove compartment space and under the steering wheel).
Now the whole centre piece is basically loose but still a bit stuck. Jank it out bit by bit. Don't rip it out too far, there are lots of cables.
Now the only thing that is left to free the radio is pulling of the ventilation knobs on the front and detaching the modules on the back!
It sounds like a long hard days work but maybe takes 1h if it is the first time and 15 min if you have done it before

you will need the radios serial number which is located on top of the unit itself. Then take that number and any Honda dealer will be able to give you the new code. Sometimes it is on a sticker with your owners manual. i am still a tech and we run into this all of the time on Hondas.

SOURCE: stock radio
removed the panel below the radio, clips hold it in and you have to yank it out without damage. then there are two 8mm head bolts behind that panel facing up. they hold the whole frame for the audio and climate controls. then push on that frame with your fingers to pop out the whole panel that the radio and the climate controls are mounted to. then simply disconnect the harnesses and remove the climate controls(three screws and the dials pop off). now you can get to the four 8mm bolts that hold the audio unit in.
