you should be able to 'unclip' the kind of little decorative frame around it, and then you'll have a few screw to get the unit out itself..

If you search, there are some very good write-ups on how to remove the unit. Once the side panels are off the center console, it is pretty obvious; if yours is on the bottom. If on the top, simply pry off the "horse shoe" with a plastic putty knife.

I've had mine apart a couple times moving all the units around.
