very carefully ;) . Just take out the stereo, and there are 4 screws that you remove. after that, just pop the bezel right out.

Why would you want to paint interior pieces anyway? Nothing says distasteful like a spray painted interior.. :)

well it's pretty easy you just have to have the touch......just remove the 4 or 5 clips with a screwdriver and just pop it right off. simple as that.

Step by step

Use wire hanger, radio tool, etc to remove the radio.

Use a socket to take the four screws out holding the bezel in.

Sorta pull at the top gently and you will hear clips come lose.

Pull the bottom to get those clips out.

If your taking it out to paint it which I assume you are you need to unscrew the hazard light that has two screws..

Disconnect the lighter.

Remove the screws holding the ac control knobs.

Should come lose when all screws are removed.

I did mine..check out my gallery.
