yea i actually saw that already
i got the climate control module removed thinking it may have something to do with the problem
no visible screws or anything holding the headunit inplace yet it simply will not come out

That's right, there is an aftermarket head unit installed.....there is a bracket that surrounds the unit.....on each side of the bracket there is a clip that you have to pry out a little while pulling on the unit......
