You can remove the card reader, its dead easy. Remove the ashtray (open it and pull it up), then pull the car reader towards you - unplug the cable (the cable has light a locking latch on it) and away you go.

There is a thread on her somewhere to show you how to fix a microswitch inside the card reader, that thread shows you how to open up the card reader etc..... Do a forum search and you should find it. also look in the articles section.
