I'm pretty sure I have my original. I moved the climate control to make space for a DD radio. If you need the part, PM me with your address and I'll see if I can send it out to you. No charge.

Thanks Aknowles for offering the part.. thats very kind.

I got the part myself, it seemed the upper trim is not standard part, so i studied the picture, and the trim surrounding is modified, so i did it a try.
cut the trim and some cutting inside the dash to fit the climate control... easy job.
planned to install Double Din in future.

the result:
yellow arrow is where i cut the trim.
(Blue circle) something wrong with my passenger window, the window won't drop when i open the doorlatch....

Ah, I see the problem. The AC unit is supposed to fit below with a different trim module. The storage bit fits above then without modification. I think my radio post has a pic. There are others too. If not Ill post one tomorrow. Wife is sleeping or I'd do it now.

BTW: I got the replacement trim piece as part of the double din kit I bought on eBay. The DD kit was well worth the - what was it - $165 as it included all the parts to remove the OEM radio and interface with the replacement radio. made installation a snap. You can do it without it, but it is worth the time and money. Plus it is completely reversible.
