    I got a 2016 limited, is there an easier way to access the cubby light and take off the radio bezel? Do I need to remove the glove compartment to get to one of the bolts holding the radio in place and then force off the AC vent trim and such?

    Did you get this sorted out? I have a 2016 WRX and access to the cubby light seems more complicated with the integrated Starlink setup. I have my two LEDs positioned nicely, but access to the cubby light connector seems not-so straight forward.

    Yes, you need to take the glove box off and a panel on the driver side as well to access a bolt on each side.
    After that it's just the 2 at the top and then the whole unit pulls off.

    Is this the easiest way, on the '16 with 7" display?


    ETA: I love this thread! Every time I pass by it, I want to go buy the kit that is on my wish list on Amazon, but I don't even have the car, yet!

    It's the only way to do it.

    Can anyone post some pics of what needs to come out to access the cubby light for the '16s?

    I don't have any photos, but if you take off the top vent, there's 2 bolts there, and one on each side of the unit housing. On the driver side, you have to remove the plastic piece between the stereo unit and steering wheel, passenger side requires removing the glove box. Once you've done that, look for the similar looking bolts to what you took out earlier. You might say to yourself, "Those? But they're pretty far back..." That's what you're looking for. Once all 4 are removed, just gently slide it up and out.

    It's a pain to get out, but just wait until you have to put it back together. I left the two side bolts out just in case I have to dig in there again.
