center dash removal question

So Im attempting to replace the lights in the A/C / heating controls but Im unable to pull out the unit because it looking like it's held in by the air inlet cable. Anyone know how to pull it out? Thanks for the help

Both, by what Ive seen the ac unit is attached to the center dash kit by two screws that you can't get to. What Im trying to do is replace the bulbs that are behind the ac unit.

I'm assuming you already took of the plastic frame with the ashtray and cig lighter in it right? And you saw two screws that were hidden by that piece and took those out right?

Okay now you have to pull off the 3 knobs for your vent/temp/fan and there are two screws under those. One under the temp knob and one under the vent knob. Oh and you also have to pull off the knob for the little slider that controls air circulation.

Once you take those two hidden screws out just pull the plastic frame towards you and up. The very top is just held with a plastic hook that will just pop out of place, and you then only have to unhook the power to the clock. Voila! Full access to the bulbs thumbsup
