2008 Compass Dashboard Question, GPS antenna removal

I am looking to gain access to my GPS antenna located under the "hump" in the middle of the dashboard on my 2008 Jeep Compass.

Does anyway know how to go about removing the cover to the "hump"...do you just pop it up with something like a screwdriver, or should I take off the Bezel first or is that unnecessary?

Thanks

There are some screws holding stuff in that need to be removed. Take a look at this and see if it helps.

You don't need to remove the radio/Nav unit but the bezels to come off to gain access.

Look for "Jeep Compass/Patriot" on the top of the page and the bottom says

Yeah its a pry tool. You dont really need that. I just used my hands and pull upwards on the two front corners first and then the 2 rear corners to remove top center piece that you want to get into. Takes a little bit of pressure.
