2005 Radio Bezel Removal How To (with pics)
 
1. Pull down on the cubby hole underneath the bezel and then pull it out towards you. It just snaps in to the underneath of the dash.

2. Reach behind the bezel (where the cubby hole was) and push from behind the bezel to pop it out (it clips in)

3. Then pull on the left side to pop the top clips out of the dash.

5. You now have access to the radio!

6. Remove the (4) 7mm screws that hold the radio in, and it'll come right out (after you unclip the radio harness & antenna plug from behind the factory radio)

Easier shown in pictures then done [:)~] (Requires a lot of force to push it from behind, atleast mine did)

I like the last shot that shows where the clips are located behind the Bezel.

Thanks for the pictures, they make for a very clear procedure!

You can also use a butter knife to remove the bezel.. Easy as cake..And no scratches !!

It was your write up on FJ that helped me out. I think the pictures there are not working anymore but you did a great job and totally helped a novice out. I applaud you.

Would i be correct in assuming that no special tool is required for the removal of the stock head unit in 07 models? Once you remove the Bezel or whatever it's called, it's just a matter of unscrewing the head unit?

Looking at the head unit in my car there are no slots for those "U" shaped tools that i needed for my 99 Cougar (and presumably most other Fords). All i see is a small 3/4" slot on the upper right side of the unit.

Correct...all you will need is either a 7mm nut driver or a 7mm socket and at least a 3" extension.
