Hey all, I'm having a hard time removing the plastic front that goes over the factory stereo/climate controls...not sure even what to call it. Center Dash?
I'm new here and having searched the forums, only seem to find info relating to new models. (Such as"> )
I am able to remove the plastic covers from the hand brake and shifter, but can't see where to go from there.
Any help would be much appreciated. I really don't want to screw up my new car after only two weeks.

really, it should be very similar to my older impreza.

1) remove shifter surround

2) remove ash tray

3) then really.. you grab at the HVAC/radio surround and tug

it's held in with clips.

see my din pocket installation page

maybe that will help: stuff/rs/tuning/subaru-dinpocket.htm

the surround snaps in/snaps out

you do need to be careful....
but that's the only way to get that sucker off of there :)

She's right

Thanks for the prompt response; thanks even more for a right answer. Didn't even think to look at Impreza information. But it's near identical.

While you were responding I was out squinting, prying and tugging. Got it off in one piece too!
