Below is a
modified version of David Cecils doc on how to remove the
center console. Ok, so it does not show a picture of the
navigation screen but you get the point. To remove the 4x3
Navigation assembly, you must first work on the glovebox. The
basic procedure is to open the glovebox, remove the outer
beige (or whatever interior color you have) trim below the

Start by opening the glovebox and detaching the black plastic
The cover is held in place by three screws and a pressure
rivet. Removing the cover will provide
access to the nylon screws shown in the next photo.
Next, remove the beige dash trim below the wood. There are
four nylon screws holding it in place from
the inside of the top of the glovebox.
The wood trim is secured to the dash by another set of four
nylon screws, accessible from the inside

The wood trim on the left side of the console is removed by
simply pulling it away from the dash. As
with the other side, the wood is secured by two metal posts
that are held in place by pressure only.
There are no screws to remove on the left side.
Once the trim panel is removed, remove the three screws holding the tirm panel into place and then remove the 4 screws surrounding the navigation display as shown in the below video
