You have to take off the lower dash first, then the 7mm's for the pad. Then, pull the defrost grille carefully and disconnect the sensor. Grab the pad and pull it straight back. You dont have to take out the A pillars, but it will make it easier.

Nah, not too bad. Maybe a 45 min job, tops. Just make sure that you get all those screws on the bottom. There is a couple that are hard to find: one behind the fuse panel door on the left, and I think over by the glove box. I forgot to tell you the first thing to take out is the bezel around the gauges (two screws straight up into the pad).

Once you have the pad out, you can take out the passenger side airbag if you want. That gives you a huge space for electronics if that is your thing...

Yes, there is the trim piece all the way to the right which in order to remove you must open you glovebox. You just have to pull towards you. More screws holding the dash pad will be there. By the way, be careful as you remove the lower dash since small tabs/clips can break off easily :angry: . Good luck
