I searched all your posts (many) but I couldn’t find any pic of this removal. Can you repost the pic.

Thanks

Arrow Summary

Is there a quick summary of the minimum steps required to remove the Nav Monitor? I am putting an Aux Audio jack on my '05 Vert. The instructions that came with the input simply say remove the monitor, refer to TIS for more information.

There seems to be LOTS of information for non navigation installations.

Thanks,
Charlie

I had to pull mine out and came across this very thread back in the day. It's actually much easier than you think. Let's see if I remember this:

- Remove trim above glove box. (should pop off with fingers easily)
- Remove trim above nav. (should pop off with fingers easily). I believe this gives access to vent screws.
- Remove vent screws.
- Remove air vents above nav with help of flathead screw driver. This is tricky and feels like it's going to brake. Just pull it straight out. There are grooved clips attached to the vents holding it in place in the dash, they are pretty strong though and shouldn't brake. This gives you access to the bolts holding the nav.
- Remove nav screws.
- Finally, open nav unit by pressing the eject button (like to put a tape in). You only have a few seconds before it'll close automatically. Here is the magic that I had to dig for...go buy two metal finger-nail files, basically flat and thin...at the bottom of the nav under the faceplate there are two slots, one on each side. Insert the nail files in each slot and the nav should just slide right out.

great info also, to avoid the nav screen from closing again.. just unplug the battery when the nav screen door is in the up position. this way you can take your time.

Thanks. Good idea on the nav door/battery thing too!

Not to take away from EAS as I use them as well but if you're looking to get it done tonight...here is the kind of file you should look for:
