Help removing Pioneer head unit to install Audioquest Forrest

I got a new Pioneer DEH-80prs head unit last year and absolutely love it. I mostly use it to play music from my iPhone 4S. I recently upgraded the stock iphone/usb cable to an Audioquest Forrest cable. To try out the new cable I'll need to pull out the head unit and have no clue how to remove it. I have a 2002 Toyota Tacoma and it looks like I'll need to remove part of the console. Can anybody give me some pointer how to do this?

Thanks,
Ernie

    I didn't have much time when I posted that but good luck. My tundra is a b::ch because of the jbl system. Hope yours is better.

    Well that took about 30 min to get the Forest installed. Easy peasy.

    The new cable is wider and less flexible and appears well built. I'm excited to listen to it and hear if there is an improvement. For $35 this will be a fun experiment. I did a quick 30 sec listen just to make sure I had it all connected right. But I'll be listening to it every time I travel, so it will get lots of use. I'll write more later about my listening impressions.

    So far so good. I noticed an immediate extension in bass. Things also sound more relaxed and organic. The bass seems a tad loose and I'm hoping it tights up a little more as it breaks in. I have to say it is a keeper for sure. Very pleased with the initial results.

    After using for a week, it is clear that the AudioQuest Forest has improved every part of the music compared to a stock cable. No surprise really. I would say its a significant improvement.
