It's actually very easy to remove. There is only one screw, on the top right hand side of the unit going into the top of the glove compartment. Once you remove that, the unit will swing out. There are two connectors - one fiber and one electrical. As long as you have no other fiber devices - Harmon-Kardon amplifier, TeleAid or cell phone, then you can just leave the fiber connector unplugged. If you do have other fiber devices, then you'll need to keep the circuit completed, which you can do with a special connector from the dealer.
