How do you remove cd player radio out of 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 Series

The center-stack Bezel around the radio/heater controls snaps-out of place easily. Remove the 4 screws from the radio bezel and slide the radio out. Disconnect the harness connectors on the rear of the radio, and you are done. Installation is the reverse of removal.

We need more instructions about how to remove the bezel because we are afraid we are going to break it as it won't snap out easily. There is also a woodgrain panel around the radio and heater. Is that what you are calling the bezel?
Expert:  Mike Kellam replied 8 years ago.

Sorry for the delay in reply. I double checked the disassembly procedure and it is as follows:


The Woodgrain trim is the bezel. You need to remove the lower knee-blocker panel (below the column) and remove screws from the left side. On the right side, open the glove box, and remove 2 screws. In the recess of the bag hook on the right side of the bezel, remove one more screw. At this point you should be able to pull the bezel assembly away from the dash. It snaps in tightly, and can be a little tough to dislodge the clips, but no damage should occur. Just make sure to pull the bezel straight away from the dash.
