should just snap in. probably will need to put shift lever in the low position to get it out. Then the screws holing the stereo are exposed.

It just pops out, no shifter movement necessary, and Matt'* right, the screws will be right there.

Should take you about one minute to pop it out and remove the OEM deck.
