Now there was no way to put the bezel back on unless I got the housing out. That took me about 45 minutes of struggling with every slim tool in the book. There are 4 clips that can only be released from inside the dash. I had to use 2 small bendable spatulas, a butter knife and a cake icing spreading tool to hold down all 4 clips at once while I pulled from the outside.
Smells like guinea pig in here....

Thanks for the tip on NOT doing this.

Ya, ya, ya, I'm getting there. It's like I need VOTS for my projects, I'm still in Paint although I expect Trim today
