there is a screw up the top above your head, and then it unclips
beware
most of the clips break off once it comes off

Agreed. Just count the number of metal objects you hear hitting the ground after you wrestle the cover off... and go from there. I lost one, and it clipped back on nicely. Use the edge trim for the roof lining to make it look pretty.

doesn't look like there's much room for wires to go behind it.
I did break one of the clips. It's sitting there loose now, it's still holding in/sitting in at the bottom were it meets the dash. I presume it just lifts out ehre.
Havn't bothered taking the rest out as i need to run to JayCar and get the cables now!

Yep - clips have broken off for me too, do it really carefully and have a spare A Pillar on stand-by.
