    oh sorry, pry around the shifter, and there should be 2 screws underneath, losen those and the bezel should come off.

    I went through the same thing when installing my XM. Once you get to the very top of the console and everything else is popped out, just rap a flathead screwdriver in an old t-shirt or rag and wedge it in, and pry it off. It takes a good amount of force, and feels like your gonna snap something, but it will pop off perfectly. I didn't damage my console and it went back together perfectly.... no ratlling at all. And yes, this was on an '05.
