I need to drill a small hole in the back or side of the storage slot directly below the radio in my 2009 2500 to run wires for a trailer brake controller.
Does anyone know the easiest way to remove the dash cover around the radio so I can check out what is directly behind or beside this area?
Don't want to drill without knowing what's what.
Any help would be appreciated.:confused013::confused013:

If it's like my 06 you have to remove cup holder to get the two screws that come in form the bottom then it just snaps out

on my 03 it just unclips with one screw.in the middle. the 09 should be close to the same. pull any screws you see on the front and bottom of the dash. then start on the driver side by the door and pull on the panels. be careful pull slow they should come out pretty easy.

I'm under the understanding that there are two screws on the bottom side of the bezel located behind the plastic panel above the shifter consol/cupholder. Then it just unclips.

Sorry to bring up an old thread. I am getting ready to wire my brake controller in the slot below my radio and was wondering if you ever got yours in? Do you have any pictures? Thanks

Brake controller install

In the 2009 the dash cover over the radio and storage area can be taken off by using a small plastic wedge to start removal at the bottom corner of driver side.
I drilled a hole in the back of the storage slot and ran the wiring through this to the back of the dash and around to the connection points the controller needed.
I mounted a P3 controller in the storage slot with double sided tape and it has worked great.
Easy to see and adjust.

I am going to hopefully get mine installed in that slot this weekend. Does it stick out quite a ways? Do you have any pics of yours?

Don't have any pictures.
It sticks out about 2 inches and I have a GPS installed beside it.
Both are in a good position for viewing.
