05 Santa Fe Radio Replacement

01-12-2008, 07:09 PM
Have a 2005 Santa Fe and plan on changing the Monsoon Sound with a replacement. (CD jammed in old one, bought a replacement on ebay for $9.00)
My question : Is there any trick to removing the plastic dash trim in front
of the radio so I don't ruin it. I can't see how it comes off and I don't want to
just start prying at it and have the plastic crack.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

2005 Santa Fe GLS 56000 miles (replaced the 2001 SF with 89000 miles)

Down near the bottom of the center console, there are some screws (4 or 6, I can't remember). I think that by removing them, the whole piece will come off. I had to take the cover off the gear shifter and the only way to get it off was by removing ALL the screws. A word of CAUTION, though...it was HELL getting it back on!
