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 wood, then remove the wood trim. Do not try to remove the wood trim on it's own first -- you'll break it.


Start by opening the glovebox and detaching the black plastic cover.


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

top of the glovebox. Once the screws have been removed, gently pull the wood away from the dash. It's

secured to the dash by two metal posts which are held in place by pressure only. The wood trim is

actually laminated onto aluminum. It's a lot more sturdy than it seems -- just don't twist it or pull

to hard.


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
