What tool do you need (size, etc.) to remove those hex bolts to take off the bezel?

Get yourself a Torx set and you'll be on your way...not sure what size but they're sold in sets.

By bezel do you mean the whole dashboard? Just use hex (allen) keys to take them out. Torx have a different shape and will not fit.

Yep, get a allen wrench and remove the screws show here (the rest are decoration).

but if you are wanting to remove the cover of the switches etc, you have to remove the chrome ring around the shifter and the plate around that...then it comes out. but disconnect the wires before you pull too hard.

the tool to do that is hueyA140 butterknife. I used my swiss army knife. push on the tabs in the front and back corners of the trim ring.

Thanks Motorcity. Anyone know exactly which one and whether they are metric or SAE screws?

They are usually sold in sets. So if you get a set you will have the right one in there somewhere. I don't think they are metric. Just go buy Autozone or Advance Auto and they will figure it out for you with no charge. They may even give you one to use.
