you have to take the side carpet pieces off, there is a screw in the little vent, and one in the very back of it, you can just take the screw out of the vent part and fold it back though if you want, (i did)
there are 4 10mm bolts, 2 in each side of the radio.. take those out, and it comes out with the radio/shifter piece though.. (im pretty sure)
to take the radio/shifter bezel out, you have to take off the shift knob, open the center console lid, pull out the little cubby, and there are two screws under there, at the very back. then lift the emergency seat belt levers and take the screws out of there and pull the handles off. now lift the plastic center section off (it just pops up, then unplug the mirror switch and the light), and there are two screws under there, just behind the shifter. then lift that piece out (you dont have to take the seat belts lose, just lift the console up enought to get the screw for the shifter bezel out) and there is one more screw that holds the shifter/radio bezel in.. once you get all those screws out and the 4 10mm bolts out of the side of the radio, you just pull the shifter/radio bezel out with the radio attached...
hope this helps..

And, when actually to the radio removal...try your hardest not to strip the craptastic supersoft phillips screws out.
I had the correct screw drive it called for, and they stripped out all except for 1 of them, I think.
I ended up pounding a flat head into it and getting them out
When all else fails...use brute force...lol

I highly suggest if you are going to keep your Quest long-term you invest in a set of JIS Screwdrivers. The screws Mitsu used on these cars are NOT a true Phillips head screw. When you use an American Phillips head on them when they are tight after 30 years of sitting in the same position they will often mangle the head. The JIS screwdrivers fit sooo much better. I invested in a set when I did my restoration and I use it all the time. Well worth the money.
