Ahh yes it will feel like you are going to break it and if you have the 00-01 wood trim it is expensive or non-existent if you do break it. It has two clips, and a couple tabs that orient it on top.
The way I take it out is to slide a nylon trim tool blade into the top (if you don't have some of these get some
), about 1/3 in from one side on the top just below the climate control, and pry gently down and out. That should pop one clip out, then repeat on the opposite side and you can pull it straight out.
