remove hvac with nav unit

Hi all, I need to remove the HVAC (climate control unit) to instal the Aux cable plug, I have managed to get the 2 bottom screws undone but the top 2 are hidden behind a plastic strip and I can't seem to get to it. I have the nav screen model.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Well I just routed my cables anyway. Still, if anyone can answer, would be great.

scroll down to Step 3 OEM Navigation Removal. think this should help explain how to access those screws hidden.

Thanks, but it only shows how to take out the Nav screen which I already did.

IKHA removal

You unit looks exactly like mine - so I'd expect it to pry out from the left and right of the unit itself with a flat tip screwdriver or a plastic pry tool. I replaced my IKHA recently. It quickly came out.

What 323guy said. I've used a tape wrapped flat tip screwdriver to pry out the left & right sides of the IKHA to remove mine. Also, if you already had the Nav screen out, you can simply push the IHKA from behind to get it to come out.
