    I'm trying to pull the RNS-E to install the bluetooth, and the upper right latch won't release.

    This is an LHD dashboard, so it's right nect to the glove box... anyone know if the glove compartment comes out easily,and if so if there's a handy path to the back of the RNS-E to slip a flat-blade screwdriver up there and release it that way???

    i had a similar prblem last week you wont be able to get anything behind the glovebox is easily dropped with 7 bolts 3 along the top 1 at the back inside the box 2 on the underside of the glovebox and one on the side behind the cover which youll need to open your door to get into. i spent 3 hours and ended up destroying the clip im now looking for replacements if anyone knows of any?
