It's easy. All you have to do is to take off the dash cowel and there's 3 bolts.

First: remove the defroster vent cover closest to the windshield. You should just be able to pop it off with your fingers (no bolts in it).

Second: You will now see two bolts that are pretty much right behind your dash tray on top. Remove those and also remove the ashtray and there is a third bolt behind it. Now your cowel (at least that's what I would call it) is ready to come off. It's just held on by a few clips so pulling on it will pop it right off. The bolts can be removed with a phillips head screwdriver.

Third: Your head unit is held on by two bolts. One on the upper right hand side and the other on the bottom of the unit on the left hand side. Remove those bolts (I think they are 9 mm). Head unit will then slide out. All you have now is the connections. Two 12 pin plugs, the ground, and the antenna connection. All pop right off with the exception of the ground which is bolted on. After that your done.

Nope, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
