Ok, getting ready to take the bezel off and get in to the center console/dash. Read all the how-to threads on doing them. Just a little leery of those spring loaded clips. I HATE breaking those damn attachment clip things. Seems like one would always go on my old ford trucks. Then everything never seems to go back together right. Have no experience with dodges design.

When you start taking stuff off, do you just get a small screwdriver and start prying??? How much force are we talking. I hate to just start ripping.

Sorry if this seems like a silly post, i just like to know what i'm getting into....

First off are you talking about the piece around the radio or shifter on the floor. One around radio is cake you remove 5 screws 2 on top 2 on bottom and one behind the acc panel plug ( if you have it ) and no need to pry after the screws are out insert finger in ac vent area a little tug and it comes right off

Don't ever use a screw driver to do that.

Get one of these... http://www.amazon.com/Pro-Fit-Inter..._2?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1325872989&sr=1-2

Use that to pop the trim ring up for the first 2 clicks or so.
The trick to removing it is knowing where the tabs are.

IIRC There are 2 on each side, 3 in front and 3 in back.
Once you have it up a little you will be able to feel where they are.

I know how you are feeling, I was nervous when I first had to remove mine as well but it was much easier than I had expected.

Get familiar with it, in order to get into the dash this is the first piece to be removed, I have had mine off about 40 times now.

A full set of trim removal tools will be under $10 at an "economy tool store".
