Hi all. Did something dumb and lost a plasticized pass card behind the little centre drawer. Now drawer won’t close....and I need the card. How do I remove it.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the quick reply. Is what they refer to as “the pocket” actually what I’m referring to as the little drawer?

Thanks.

Yup. Pocket/drawer is same thing. Took me about 10 minutes to uninstall. Be careful of the screws though. Lost one trying to put it back in. It’s still floating around in my dash somewhere.

Now ain’t that a kick in the head. I am first generation Canadian from Dutch immigrant parents, I speak very little dutch, aber ich kann gut Deutsch, Spanish und Franzosich. When we visit relatives in Holland they are always miffed that I can carry on a good conversation in German but suck at Dutch.

Thanks for the help. I’ll give it a shot on the weekend.

So I pried off the front and saw the circuit board underneath it. I’m afraid of breaking the board if I pry on it. What did you do?

Thanks.

Circuit board? All you should see when the radio surround is removed is the front of the radio and the drawer, with access to the retaining screws. :)

No I mean the little circuit board behind the row of switches. God I suck at this. How does the board come off.

Tanks.

You pulled the switches away from the board. Just snap them back on and then pry the whole button bank out. Make sure you have your fingers under the entire assembly. :)
