pull off the blue trims.... torx 20's behind there, there are some torx 20's again in the windscreen vents (be carefull not to drop the bolts in lol) . Open doors, there are either one or two visible torx bolts there. then you need to remove the plastic windscreen pillars (with the alarm ultrasonics).... they clip on, but near the top there is a clip that needs pressing in with fingers. Then i think there are two hidden around the clocks (rev counter) area under the steering colum cowling (sp)

think thats it from memory, (few months ago i did mine) might be handy to have a mate help as it can be fiddly to get out and refix
good luck lol

once the retaining bolts are out, is there anything else holding the dash in?

the dash strips & plastic pillars just clip clip off do they? I'll probably break them.

dash strips just pop off... the pillars... start at the roof end, think they pop once or twice, then there is a big plastic clip that clips into the pillar of the car, hard to explain but it'll make sense when you see, these just need pressing in, then they pop off.

pretty sure from memory, thats it. might be worth disconecting he battery as the passenger airbag is there.
