    It's amazing that they got it off in the first place. Behind the CD/AC side of it are about a good half dozen screws. On the panel dim side there are another 4-6 screws. Unless you have one of the small nub philips screwdrivers, you are gonna have to take the entire dash out to get to the screws.

    You might wanna make sure that the tabs to screw thru on the CD side are still there or else you wont be able to secure that side of the bezel to the actual dash.

    Usually they just "clip" in. Is there any way to tell how its fastened by looking at the pieces that are already broken out?

    I wasn't joking, or trying to be an ass. I took my dash out a couple weeks ago to remove my heater core and AC components. I took that part off to paint it, and the only way it comes off is by taking the entire dash off.

    I just replaced that trim piece on my hatch. You have to take off the whole dash board to do it, it sounds involved but it is pretty easy.Because the trim piece is screwed in from the back. If you want a pic showing how to remove the dash pm me and i'll gladly send it to ya.

    If you can hold out till tomorrow, I can grab you some pics. Writing it down step by step without pics might be a little confusing if you have'nt ever done it before.
