youcantSEme Trim removal tools help a lot! If you have a week or two to wait before you'll be doing this, the eBay set were literally $1 and actually ended up being good quality

Buy Trim Pry Tools!!

Just wanted to add for those looking at doing this, buy some nylon Trim Pry Tools (harbor freight #69668 $7.99). Save your self from breaking a tab on a $25-$XXX trim piece. I was trying this with the tools i had at home, couldn't get the first trim piece up, trim tools only took 20min a piece.

I read somewhere that it helps to pull the side panel to make it easier/possible to access the A/C panel and shifter panel.

How did you get the A/C panel out in the first place?

Papo_Wii Question that I have. I take everything out and when I get everything back together my airbag light still on. Anybody else have that issue?

TheHumbleGeek Sorry mishka, missed your last posts! To get the shifter bezel out, you have to pull kinda firmly where the clips are in each corner. If you have a plastic trim tool, it really will help. I don't, but when i was pulling up, the gear indicator popped out and i used that to pull up on the bezel until i was able to CAREFULLY slip a knife blade under the silver bezel. I used the blade to put alittle pressure on the clip while i pulled up from the bottom of where the shift boot is. It will eventually unclip. Mine did so rather suddenly and at first i thought i broke it. I checked and it was fine. Once you get that bezel out, you should be able to get the climate control panel out.
