Re: how do you remove the console trim(around the HU)? (nananana4k)

You have to remove the trim around the HVAC controls. Behind that there are 2 screws on the top. T-20 IIRC, if not that, then T-25. Also, if you have a single DIN with a cubbie, then there are 2 other screws in the cubbie that need to be removed. Once you have those 4 out, remove the radio, switches and such and you should just be able to remove without any issues. Keep in mind, there will be some small clips at the top of the peice so be careful not to rip that apart.

Just use a thin object and pry it out. If you don't car about scratching it, use a screwdriver. I used my multitool.
