I'm replacing the climate control unit in the front dash of my vehicle.
I've taken the 2 screws in the back and the 2 screws in the inside of the center console. Also the 2 screws inside the DVD/CD compartment in the bottom. I'm still having a problem prying off the assembly. The clips and attachments are loose but I'm afraid to pull too hard and break the panels.
It looks like it's a wrap around in the back where 2 screws are so I think that wraparound is keeping it from getting loose. Help!

Thank you. The trick was to go e it a really hard pull and at the same time not breaking anything. That's what I was scared of. Now, if I wanted to take out the radio, do I need to take out the climate control unit first before taking the radio out? Please tell me no.

Thank You for that. I was praying not to remove the climate control unit and panels surrounding it.
