The control unit is just held in place with clips. I temporarily removed it when I replaced my stereo. You can get a sense of it here

All you need is a plastic pry tool.

You can Google "auto trim removal tool" so you know what to use/purchase to remove the grill that surrounds the control unit. The video demonstrates the use of the tool right at the start. Watch up to about 1:40 to see the removal of the control unit. I don't have any pics from my install.

My temperature knob fell off on Saturday and I was able to get it back into place, but it won't "snap in" place. Sigh. Hopefully, I can figure it out without having to buy a new control unit.
