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.

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.

You know, I never even realized they weren't torx. It's a Jeep, I just assumed they were torx...who knew?

phillips screw driver... star screwdriver... whatever you would like to call it. The radio is pretty straight forward when taking it out or putting it back in. Actually the entire dash is the most simple I have ever worked on. Most dashes have clips that always break or you loose inside the dash. This one in the Xk is very user friendly.
