Hey guys, can anyone please tell me what the easiest way to remove these parts out of the dash is?
I dont have to take out the whole dash do i? :?

Any help at all will do...

The air vent thingys have 2 tabs top and bottom that lock them into the dash. They have to be pushed in to release them from the dash. You may be able to gain access to them from behind.
To remove the headlight switch, pull the knob straight off and then undo the lock ring that fits around the outside of the switch.

See how you go getting behind them from under the dash, been a while since I had to muck around under one of those.

I removed mine without takinf the whole dash out.
Just used a few thin knifes, and wedged then in until they pushed the clips down, then wriggled the vent out.
if you do try this method, just do it carefully, as you dont want to snap the clips that hold them in place.

Be carfeul though, very very hard to get back in flush.
