Removing Center Gauge Bezel

I installed this a couple of months ago and thought maybe someone else would like to know how to remove it to put the new bezel in. First you need to have a screw driver or something to pry the tabs on the frame.The left and right have the same clips so I just took pictures of the right side already taken off. You can see where you have to add a little pressure to undo the clips.

Here is the back of the bezel to get an idea of where you need to pry.


Once you have the center gauge bezel loose there is still a hard plastic and rubber piece that is attached to the top cover of the steering wheel.

Here is the piece still attached to the Bezel.


The bottom soft rubber part is what you will have to pry loose from the steering wheel cover but it comes out real easy just be patient and take your time. Here is what it is attached to.

Once you get the soft rubber tabs pulled away from the steering wheel cover you can pull it out.
Now you need to get the hard plastic off the center gauge bezel. I took pliers and squeezed the clips and slide if off the pod.

Which you will end up with this::

To install the new one is pretty much just putting it back together.
Here is the finished product.
