You need a might small screwdriver to get the screws. I use a small phillips head bit from a cordless drill and a 1/4" spanner

yeah as said above.. then it will pull back towards you.. if your car has climate control you will have to unplug the temp sensor on the bottom of it before you completely take it out

My old EA as well as my current EL have phillips heads...so not sure where the allen key fits in :?

When you undo the 2 bolts, lift the plastic evenly on both ends...they kind of pop out cause they are also held down by clips. The plastic just comes up a little leaving a narrow gap running along the dashboard...when you have that, slide it towards the rear. Should slide out.

Disconnect any wirings before you remove it completely.

phong =P~
