I'm hoping someone here has been through this situation and can offer some advice. I have a 2006 LE Crew Cab w/ RF Audio and no navigation. I needed to replace the center bezel...the one that goes around the radio/HVAC with the speaker hole and cigarette light holes. I found one listed on eBay described as "New Instrument Panel Lid Bezel For 04-06 Nissan Titan" "Fits 2004-2006 Nissan Titan (LE,SE)", "with speaker". The picture looks identical to the one in my truck so I ordered it.

After receiving it and attempting to install it, I found the the Radio/HVAC panel wouldn't quite fit in the new bezel.

The dimensions of the new bezel were slightly different than the one that cam from the factory in my truck. It's really difficult to see the difference but if you measure, you realize they are different.

Stock Bezel:
544446


Replacement Bezel:

There was a previous post where someone seemed to run into the same problem:

There wasn't a lot of detail but the gist of it was that there are two similar parts, 68257-7S000( I think the post had a typo) and 68257-ZC31A that could be easily mistaken. Before I ordered this part I thought the variations were simply with speaker or with navigation or neither. Apparently, there's at least one more variation.

My question is what is the difference between these two and how do I know which one is which? Often, the aftermarket parts don't list an OEM part number for comparison. And the OEM version is very expensive.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

I had to return the less expensive eBay part... and did get credit. Then bit the bullet and ordered the OEM version from the dealership. It is ridiculous that this part is that expensive. But it did come with new cig. lighter sockets. So, that was nice. Good luck!

Yea...I am upgrading the stereo so when they mentioned it would only work if you had the base radio it would not matter so took a chance. Guess I am doing the same.

If I'd known it was a $400 fix, I would've left it alone. And once you start removing it, you'll destroy it...so, there was no turning back. It was difficult for me to believe that there are two different parts that are so close. You'd think they would've designed for a single part.

LOL Same... Ive been driving it like this for about 5 years haha (Had the truck for 12). I went looking at new Titans and decided I just couldn't justify spending 40k+ on a new one with 3 little ones running around so I told my self I would fix all the small things and treat myself to a new radio with all the bells and whistles. Well this just went from a $500-$600 upgrade to 1k+. Just have to keep telling myself that it is still the responsible thing to do HAHA . Thanks for your reply
