STEP 1. Begin by removing the simulated wood grain bezel that surrounds the
ashtray. Insert the hook tool behind the upper right corner of the bezel just below
the climate control. Pull toward you to release the right clip. Perform this same
action in the upper left corner. Set the bezel aside. Using the 9/32" socket and
driver remove the two screws that hold the ashtray module in place. Set the
screws aside. Grasp the ashtray module and carefully pull it out of it's cavity just
enough to gain access to two 5/16" hex head screws that hold the radio and
climate control unit in place. Using the 5/16" socket and driver and a telescopic
magnet remove the two screws that hold bottom section of the radio and climate
control unit. NOTE: Use the telescopic magnet to make sure the screws do
not fall behind the dash. Set the screws aside.
STEP 2. Insert the hook tool behind the lower right corner of the air duct
module just above the radio. Carefully pull toward you to release the lower right
clip that holds the duct in place. Perform this action in the lower left corner of
the duct to remove the lower left clip. Grasp the air duct and pull it out of its
cavity and set it on top of the dash. Do not disconnect any wiring. Locate and
remove the four (4) hex head screws that hold the radio and climate control in
place. Set the screws aside. Place the protective cloth over the top of the center
console. Grasp the radio and climate control module and pull it out of its cavity.
Set the module onto the center console.
