removing 1984 radio bezel / dash panel

The radio has gone south. I need to pull it out. there is an aluminum color plastic dash panel that covers the radio and the rest of the entire instrument cluster. I found five screws on top but the bottom is attached in a way I can't figure out. There's got to be screws under the lower covers that are on bottom about knee level. I don't know how to get these off.

Anybody have a 1984 shop manual they could reference or possibly sell?

Thanks in advance.

You can see that trim peace your talking about to remove it you will have to pull the three plastic bars under your dash trim you should be able to remove them with your fingers but you can use a flat head screwdriver if you like. After that is removed you will have 4-5 screws holding the dash trim on after removing the screws you should be able to remove the trim. The radio is held in with 4 screws and a clip in the back the radio should just pull out at this point. Also if you dont want to remove your headlight button you can pull on it (like your turning on your head lights) and this will allow you plenty of room to get at the screws. Good luck man just ask away if you need anymore help!
