Question about Honda Civic
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
