Default Dashboard Removal

I need to get behind the dash in the area of the A/C Controls. I took off the piece that goes under the steering column to get a better look. I then removed the piece just below the cup holder, it was all snaps that popped out. I figured I needed to start pulling stuff off from the bottom and working my way up to the A/C, but I am having hell getting out the cup holder, lol. Does anyone have a better method they could share on how to get behind the A/C panel area???

Can someone please help me out here? I would not think it would be all that hard. Thanks in advance.

Yes I have the cup holders that fold up below the A/C controls. I just figured out how to get the cup holders out. There were two screws at the bottom, and then there were two more screws that were behind the panel when the cup holder was open that had to be removed. Now I am trying to figure out the next piece I need to remove after the cup holder. It is giving me fits.

Quig: What piece are you calling the radio bezel?

The radio bezel is the piece that goes around the radio, the AC controls and has the cig lighter in it as well. That whole piece pops out, no screws. I used a screw driver to pry it out. Started from the top above the radio. Here is a diagram:

Whoa.... before you go prying the radio bezel out, please note that there are two screws underneath the bezel/above the cup holders that you just took out. Hopefully you didn't crack your bezel yanking on it.
