I got mine from Wyckoff, a dealer sponsor. There is a Tech thread on the whole process, I did my Nav and it was very easy. The bezel just pops off by prying the edge up with a flat blade, you gently work around and voila, since you won't re use this bezel no big deal if you are a butcher unless you plan to sell it and the radio on ebay like I did. Putting the new one on is a simple press int place deal with the existing clips. Search the NAV installation threads for details.

Open the ashtray compartment between the seat heater switches. Pull the bezel from the edge from this compartment. It just snaps out. Try to resell on e-bay or here for $10-20.

I bought my bezel from Mopar Super Center (our sponser). I think they're the cheapest.

The swap is really simple...pm me if you have any questions. Did you get your Nav from e-bay? Which seller? (After watching these sales for 6 months before I purchased mine, you learn who the sellers are). I bought a screen saver because of the many Navs I've seen on e-bay with scratches.

While this may be the case, I didn't have quite as easy a time getting mine off. I ended up looking at the replacement bezel to find the exact locations of the clips and using a very skinny, metal ruler to slide between the dash and the bezel, then prying the clips forward and loose. It wasn't hard, but just pulling from the ashtray made me very nervous and seemed to put undue stress on parts of the bezel. Just my experience.

Using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent (1), remove the center bezel (2) from the instrument panel (3) by releasing the snap retainers from the instrument panel. Disconnect the electrical connectors (3) from the A/C - heater control (4) and the switch pod and remove the center bezel (1) from the vehicle.

Ditto. Ashtray pull didn't work for me.

What did work was getting a metal spatula, get a t-shirt to cushion it, and pry the bezel from the TOP CENTER! Then, work your way to the sides.

Bottom was the HARDEST to get out.
