Ok thank you Bob Beverley,

The entire trim piece and around the audio unit and the heater controls is just held in by clips. You just have to start to pry it out then pull it off.

I will attach a diagram of the trim piece. This is the only diagram the service manual offers for this procedure.

Customer Satisfaction is my #1 goal!
