Alright bro...are you refering to the whole unit?  'cause all that black around the tape deck is one huge unit and all comes out as a whole.  You'll need a removal tool, or a wire hanger.  The two holes on either side of the tape deck are what you put the tool/hanger into to remove the unit.  There are a couple connections (I think one for each knob of the climate controls, and then the defrost and the radio).   You'll need an aftermarket plate (Metra or Scoche[sp?]) to install plus, obviously, a new head unit with the proper wiring kit.

Let me know if you need anything else....
