    The surround of your hazards buttons ect if you have double din just unclips off and then pull the climate unit down and forward at same time with a little force and will just come out easy as that.

    You need to remove the radio (if single din ) or radio and switch button panel if two din and then just pull the top towards you. It will hinge out.
