Couldn't find a write-up here, here is a link to another resource that might help. It is for a different model year, but unless the 2011's have changed much IRT the radio it should help.

Thanks mckbrew...the 2011 interior is slightly different the vents are next to the radio instead of under and there is a tray on top of the radio. I looked in a couple of other forums myself and found a post about removing 4 screws which are hex two under the steering wheel one in the cubby hole under the radio and another in the tray...but no pictures....which always help and no details on removing the trim around the radio..I have a few days before the new radio gets here..hopefully I can find something. If I can't I will forge ahead and do a write up on it with pictures. Thanks again

Best of luck with your search and please do

There were two here in the write-up index but they were both pre-2011

Under the steering wheel is a pop-off panel. This exposes two screws near the top, remove these. In the tray area on top of the radio remove the rubber liner and there is another screw under that. The last on is behind the electric windows control unit, pop this off with a screwdriver or flat plastic blade and then there is one screw under that. Once these (4) screws are removed, the dash panel surrounding the radio all the way over to the drivers side, pops up and out. Once removed, you'll see the four screws on the radio and it just slides out. If you have a set of interior body panel tools, which are various plastic prior bars, it make things much easier and safer on your interior. Good luck. I don't think I've missed anything. It's really pretty easy to remove.

Thanks Ben, it does seem easy to do, this is going to be my project for this weekend, weather is suppose to be nice, I will follow your directions. Can I get a set of the interior body panel tools at my local auto parts store? I will also take pictures of the install as i go along.

Thanks again
