when I plugin a cable from my iPod the Aux option is never displayed on the radio. Looking on the internet it appears this is a common problem and can be fixed by either repairing or replacing the Aux audio jack. I would like to know how to get the jack out of the dash to do the repair/replace.

Some of this repair or removal and replacement requires special tools to release the air bag and remove the steering wheel and can be time consuming so if you do not know the proper air bag handling info or have special tools to do this it may be best unfortunately for someone that does have these tools to remove and replace this jack assembly.
