This is a discussion on Dash radio surround removal within the Electronics/Car Audio forums, part of the Interior Mods category; I have a 2011 WRX and im thinking about removing the radio surround to paint it. Does anybody have any ...
It just pops off...Use a really thin knife or screw driver and start from the top and work your way around and down to the bottom, it's really easy.

You can get a Auto Trim Panel removal kit which has 5 or 6 tools for different types of panels at Harbor Freight for about $5. It has saved me a bunch of time, and I have not nicked/scratched anything yet like used to happen with screwdrivers.
Definitely use a plastic trim removal tool or you'll mar it up badly. I started at the bottom, though. The Service Manual says so, and it would also hide any marring.
Its a lot easier,if you start from the passenger side.Pop out the side piece.Unscrew the trim & yank it off.The center bezel comes right off with it.

Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.
Great video! I popped it off in my college parking lot with no tools! Mine is black and silver. The plan is to paint it to match the rest of the accents in side the car (dark grey). Any other color suggestions?
