Replacing OEM Indash Trailer Brake Controller

Can anyone give me some advice on how to easily access the in dash TBC so I can replace it with a new unit? The TBC is located right above the drink holder in the dash...if the drink holder is removed can the wiring plug and back of the old TBC be reached? Thanks for any advice in advance...

Yes, that access helps. You may also need to pop out whatever occupies the other half of the space next to the TBC. The TBC assembly is held in by springs that wedge it in pretty tight so you will need to apply a lot of pressure to pop it out from behind. They can be a PITA.

Not sure if you already did it but the two small panels where the cigarette lighter is and the aux port for the stereo is those panels pop out. Once those get removed there is two small screws that once you remove them the whole dash section comes out if you pull out from the bottom, and can easily access the tbc and Upfitter switches.
