1)unplug the battery then remove every bolt you can see relating to the dash
2)then remove the ones you could not see then remove the 13mm ones holding the steering colum to the dash then the 2 10mm on each end under the dash and by the doors
3)pull remove wiring check for missed screws
4)pull again remove missed wiring
5)get a case of cbf'd
6)have beer ask question again lol
you could skip steps 2,3and 4 and jump to 5 and 6 as i tend to do but

you'll need to remove the center console an that sorta thing as well to get the two srews behind that wich hold the das as well ... do the top bit were the window vents are two screws either side... push forward then bak ones there out (try not to brake clips... ) then find any other screw you can find ones thats out lift up first then towards you to get the dash out.... umm you'll wanna get under it an undo the plugs (near the fuses) MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DISCONECTED BATTERY BY NOW... pull dash out a bit disconect all other wires an screws behind the dash which will stop you from taking it out

also what the other guy said about the sterring wheel

cheers DAN

hey i've done it my self its not hard just have some object that you can rest it on while you pull it out do one side rest it on something do the other.... get under it then start pulling plugs ( can pull most the out before you even need to take the dash off just be patient with some the plugs) then ones you lift its out of the position something either side of it to rest on undo the ones in the bak then go for gold out the passanger door : ).... an the air bags will be fine as LONG AS YOU DISCONECT THE BATTERY ... an then bingo noo problems there :)
