Just as a warning, this is going to be a pain...  I'm assuming you have the "sliding levers" HVAC controls.
I took the center control pod out so I could wire in a "headlights on" buzzer.  It's not possible (at least not straightforward) to remove the HVAC controls from the rest of the center bezel.  With the lever controls, the levers actuate cables that effect the actual adjustment under or behind the dash.  There are three cables, one each for temp, recirc and airflow.  There's one cable on each side of the center stack under the dash beyond where the plastic trim ends.  The third is behind the glove box (yes you'll need to remove the glove box to get to it).  Detach each cable under the dash, then you can massage the center bezel out of place.  
While I was there, I added a "headlight off" buzzer, as Hyundai never put one in as original equipment, and I was sick of leaving the lights on and having the jump-start it.  I tapped into the cigarette lighter hot line, and the hot for the cigarette lighter light, and connected a piezo buzzer from Radio Shack.  The light comes on with the headlights, and the lighter socket is only live when the ignition is on.  Net result is that the buzzer sounds when you leave the lights on.

I have a 2006 Jeep Commander and I cant locate the CD eject button referred to in the manual (EJT CD). Where the hell is it?

my guess, no photos from you (our horror)
or the glove manual , is wrong, wrong year, or wrong page
the stock, cars have up to 3 audio system stock,
and the put all 3 in the book.
if not stock or wrong head there (was changed out)
then the real radio probably is in H3LL.

Trying to replace a radio in an Nissan Almera n16 (2003), I Is it possible to replace this radio, or because the dash radio/Air-con is all the one?

Look at the bezel around the radio. It just pops off. If it goes up around the instrument panel, look for screws around there. Under the bezel, there will be screws to remove.

I need to installl a cd player in my car and i cant get the thing that holds the radio and heater off.

You will have to remove the dash cover to gain access to that bezel piece. That bezel actually extends around the instrument cluster and and radio area, all one piece. The dash cover is held on by a series of torx screws located under the top defrost vent, side access panels (when you open the car doors, there is a panel on each side). In the glove box area and there are two 10 mm bolts that are tucked up under in the glove box area but accessible. After you remove the dash cover, you can remove the torx screws that hold the bezel in place. On the bezel down by the radio, there are spring clips that hold that part of the bezel. Remember when replacing the stock OEM radio, you will need to buy a mounting hardware kit, wiring harness kit and antenna kit for the Cavalier that will work with your new cd player.

How do you get the stock radio deck out of a 1991 buick park avenue?

*It's a bit tricky but not difficult, if you know how the dash in the Park Avenue is put together. But before you do anything, safety first. *Disconnect the negative cable from the battery before doing any electrical work on a car. This prevents shorting out your cars electrical system.

*If you own the 90 -91 Park Avenue model, simply pull off the decorative trim away from the radio to expose the torq screws that hold the radio into the dash. You will need a torq screwdriver of the right size to remove the radio.
Available from your local autoparts store.

*If you own the 91-92 model, it's a whole different ball game. This since the dash is much more tightly compacted. It's a combination of a snap together assembly and Torq screws. The dash is held together in columns or sections.

*The torq screws on these models are hidden behind the heater vents in the upper dash. First pry the wooden trim (Which surrounds the climate control module) on the bottom of the dash off, gently but firmly until it comes free, exposing the Torq screws on the lower dash. Remove the heater vents (hiding the upper screws ) by popping them out with a straight blade screw driver. Then remove all Torq screws visible to the eye, only from the column that is holding is holding the radio in place.

*You will then be able to remove the black colored plastic off the dash to expose the radio. (Use care when removing the lower dash column as some climate control and airbag sensors might be embedded).

*Remove all Torq screws holding the radio in place, (and keep track of all screws) pull the radio out of the dash, and disconnect electrical connectors. If you'll be replacing the stock radio with a non factory radio, make sure all electrical connection watch up, since security feature in the radio are integrated into the radio. (some of these effect basic function on your vehicle like the headlights) If you will be reinstalling the stock radio, you will have to have it unlocked by the dealership. The DelcoLoc system will now think the radio is stolen, because of it's internal security features. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to install a in dash cd player in my 2000 mitsubishi diamante and we cant get the stock stereo out its stuck i dont know if the wood part aroun the stereo comes out so we can get to the wires...

You need to pull the center vent out and the ashtray. Then you will need to unscrew the four screws and pull the radio and ac/heat controlls out at thesame time. Then on the backside of that there will be some more screws that must be removed.

Stereo removal

you will need to unscrew your dash and pull off the front plate of your dash, then you will need to unscrew the stock radio, then you will need to go ahead and pull out the adapter from the back of your radio. Next you will need to attach your adapter harness to your car harness and splice the color coded wires to the harness on your new cd player.After that, you will need to plug your antenna back into your new cd player, Note that some cd players will require an adapter, these can be found at circuit city or at your local car dealerships.-Shocker

Cd player

remove ash tray one screw behind there, then remove top dash panel that goes from end to end across dash this just snaps off pull upward to remove you will see 2 screws on top of trim around radio remove these 2 and then dash trim will pull off pull straight back then radio can be removed should be held in by 2 10mm bolts, this should cover 80% of the radios (important TIP) if it still doesn't come out the trick is some of the wranglers have an extra security bar on stock cd players only you will see 2 more 10mm bolt on the top of the dash where you removed the 2 screws from earlier these hold a bracket that is mounted to the back of the cd player once they are unbolted you can remove the radio it takes some pulling and tweaking of the brackets but it will come out
