You should be able to get to it by taking the dash interior trim pieces off first.
there's a DIY for the trim pieces in the Tech section.

you need to remove the trim piece over the passenger airbag before you can remove the trim piece over the stereo. if you try to pry the center trim without removing the passenger trim, you'll just end up damaging the center trim. to remove the trim, carefully pry it off with a flathead screwdriver. once the center trim piece is off, look for whatever screws that are holding the stereo in place and remove them. next, pull out the stereo, and unplug the adaptor in the back. installation is in the reverse order.

Yup, no problem there Erick. The clips are more like "pressure pins", so they won't break or loosen up.
