2014 Ceed w/ sat nav - Remove current head unit?


I'm wanting to install an under-seat sub in my 2014 Kia Ceed 4, and to do so I will need to tap into the speaker cables in the back of the head unit. (I would post an image but this is my first post!)

Does anybody know how I remove the piano black trim that surrounds the head unit and start/stop button?

As a side question, does anybody know if I can obtain a very short extender for the harness on the radio, so that I can splice the cables on that rather than the original cables? I always like to be able to easily revert to stock.

Not sure if you’ve already done it but I’m about to replace my stereo with an aftermarket one so after hunting about for details of how to remove I’ve found these on Facebook.

I am bit desperate. I am trying to fix or replace damaged AUX-USB panel in Kia Ceed.

The root cause is broken JACK connector in AUX port. The tip of the JACK connector is stucked in AUX. I tried to remove it, but without success. Therefore I would like to replace it. But first, I need to know I am able to do it myself.

I started to remove plastic parts around center console. In fact, I followed this procedure:
Kia Cee'd - Floor Console Assembly Repair procedures - Floor Console (kceed DOT com)

I am stuck in point 4: After loosening the mounting screws, then remove the console tray (A).

I am not able to get out the console tray. 2 screws removed, then I unclipped the tray on the driver side, but I failed to unclip/detach it on the front passenger side. In fact, it seems to be different clipping mechanism, which I guess might not be design for unclipping.

Question: Has anybody experience in removing the tray? If yes, could you describe how?


P.S.: I tried to attach a few pictures to this post, but I am not allowed to that yet.
