Not sure if you have ELS or Premium audio, this is for premium, and it looks like it many pages long, with each section referring do another section

1 -wear gloves, cover everything w towels so you don't scratch things, get all your codes and radio presets written down.
2 - remove center console (reference 1) and passenger dash trim (reference 2)
3 - remove drivers center trim and passengers center trim( ref 3)
4 - remove climate control (ref 4) and center pocket ( ref 5)
5 - disconnect bolt, under big knob, facing up, and pull head unit out
6 - disconnect connectors (5 or 6)
7 - remove dash center vent (ref 6)
8 - separate audio unit from faceplate (screws and bolts)

Reverse to install

I don't have time for the references

The ELS is a bit less, don't see the quick differences
