Help with installing MP3 player

I am trying to take apart the center console as described in this pdf (http://www.handa-accessories.com/accord/04audio.pdf) to install an MP3 player but have run into a few snags. I have managed to remove the trim around the shift knob but can't seem to get the seat heater connectors off. I assume that the white plastic piece at the bottom should pry off. Do you have you have to use a screwdriver to get it off or can it be done by hand. The worst part is I can't seem to get the coin pocket out. I tried yanking it, tried to push it out from the bottom but it wont give. Am I doing something wrong. The rubber lining on the coin pocket started coming out as I was pulling on it so it seems I might need to reglue it.

You should be able to pry off the heated seat connectors with your hand. As for the "NOT AN ASH TRAY" holder, remove the rubber lining and there will be 2 screws underneat, then just pull it off and then proceed to the center console.

I did remove the rubber lining, however, there were no screws present there. According to the pdf document the coin pocket should come out but it appears to be stuck. Can't even pry it or push it out, I just don't get it.

Also, I forgot to mention that this is a 2004 Accord Coupe 6-speed. There might be a difference in the assembly although the pdf document does not seem to indicate that.

Remove the plastic coin holder from the coin holder area. This is no trivial task. The coin holder insert is held by two clips underneath it. In order to release them, I had to pry two flathead screwdrivers under the insert and force the thing up. I scratched it up pretty bad but it's hidden when placed back in so it doesn't matter.

At first it doesn't seem like this thing will even budge, but I guarantee that it will come out.
Pretty helpful website with lots of pics. I'm gonna be doing this install myself tomorrow so i'm glad i found it.
