I'm trying to get my center console apart and I can't seem to get chrome ring around the shifter out. Is that required to get the main panel out around the shifter? I'm able to get the parts around the radio out no problem, but I'm trying to run a cable from behind the radio to the center console storage area.
On my 08 Navigator, I pried up the woodgrain panel under the bezel with a putty knife and the chrome ring came off in one piece. I got the tip from somewhere out in internetland; I can't find it again, otherwise i would send you a link.
Open up the center console arm rest, and pry the trim panel up from the rear edge. The chrome ring comes right along with it. I struggled through all of this when I put a factory navigation system in my new 08. (The Nav system was from a 07 and it plugged right in and worked perfectly.)
