First you need to take out the lower piece of the console. Put the car into 3rd gear and grab the console through the bottom of the rubber gear gaiter and pull it out. Then unclip the top right corner, then the top left, this one is tricky and you need to be carefull to to stress the plastic. Once you unclipped that undo the fag light and hazard light wiring plugs and turn the lower console round 180 degrees and let it dangle.

Now you can see inside and should be to see the metal frame that behind the main console, at the bottom it splits into a kind of upside down Y shape, at either side you should be able to see the screws?? (the screw heads face either side of the car.

The screw on the left, if a bit awkward to get to, can be reached from behind the glove box. Just open glove box, pull it downwards, and to the left

Once you've slackened (don't need to come out, there's also a black cable that clipped in between these, you'll need to undo that) there are 2 phillips screws at the front just under the console on a metal 'bar' that 'll need to be undone. Then the whole console can be pulled out, bottom first

Yup, just follow that guide. If it's a stock radio you're removing the chances are you'll have to unclip part of your dash to get behind it and remove the screws going into the side.

There is another topic about this, had a look but couldn't find it. Perhaps Nick deleted it :p
