With the exception of the large connector, the other connectors could just be pulled out after pressing on the release tabs on their sides. The large connector had a special locking mechanism. This was when it was locked.

This was when it was unlocked.

Question. Does anyone know if there is a trim piece/storage compartment that fits into where the AC Heater controls are being removed from in these pics?

I'm thinking of moving my AC heater control down and installing a single DIN stereo with a "flip down LCD screen" where the factory stereo is.
