Ok, ive got the 3 screws behind my steering wheel and one on either side of the wheel..Ive taken the one out to the left of my CD player but its still stuck...Ive tried just pulling it out hoping it was just a clip or somthing but no go...Am I missed a screw or do I just need to pull harder? Sorry if I confused you, thanks in advance.

Also dumb question..My airbag wont go off if I take off my steering wheel will it?

I think you have missed the other screw below the cd player on the right hand side.

yeh remove ur facia thing around ur cd player... should be two either in or next to the ash tray. then take that off and will be another 2 or 3 screws which hold that side of the dash in... there are a couple clips that run accros the top of the dash and might pop off wen u pull the dash out, watch where and how these go on so u can put it bak together :)

OK to make it easier look at this.
Take out the ashtray. 1 screw there wich takes of the radio surround.
Behind the radio surround there are 2 screw one on either side.
The rest are where i marked with red.
It should just unclip after that.

just note that, the top left hand corner (where trip computer is) is held in by 3 little black clips. so if it feels hard to get out, just pull on it. nothing will break. they look like this /\

Hey mate, To remove the dash try reading this thread:
http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopi ... %20removal

And no The Air bags wont go off when removing the steering wheel (presuming you have disconnected your terminals). You can take the air bags out before you take Steering wheel out!

Hope This Helps.
