I did this. It's been a while, but I don't remember moving any of the HVAC stuff... once the radio's out, you're looking at the guts of the HVAC system, and it's easy to see the mechanism that triggers the AC and the infamous purple wires.
The only hard part is working up the courage to REALLY yank on the trim ring to get it out of the dash. If you look in the FSM, it shows where the clips are, and it comes out a lot easier if you're yanking (with spring hooks or whatever) where the clips are.
