Question Removal of center dash pod?

How do you get that thing out? I found the two screws hidden under the covers, but trying to pull it out doesn't seem like a good idea. It's clear the hood of the pod would come out with the whole thing, including the two air vents under it, but I don't see any other screws.

A little help, please?

Use a butter knife to pry it out after you've removed the 2 screws.

Look on the http://www.azscooby.com/ site and in the mods section I have the install for the gauge pod scanned in. There are instructions there.

While we're on the topic, the normal dash compartment is attached to the vents, right? Do any of the pods come with the vents as well? I've only seen them without and cut to fit...

BTW, Peaty your link is off - www.azscooby.com

When I pull mine out, I just yanked hard on it out because being gentle just wasn't doing it for me. ( I know what your thinking so don't even start, ...man you guys are sick ) I wouldn't recommend this because if I was careful I could have broken something.
__________________

The vents actually are not attached to the pod, just the bezel area that surrounds the vents.
From the dealer instructions that the mechanics use to install the different pods, it says that they no longer have to cut that part of it out because the replacement now has the vent bezel area on it and is a clean replacement.
