Hey guys, I've been trying to work out how to get the silver trim on my dash off for the last few days. The trim on the doors pops off just fine, but whenever I try to pull the dash trim off it feels like it's screwed down somewhere because it just wont budge.
Anyone got any idea how to get these things off?

These panels do have clips holding them in. The clips are a kind of V shape, there is only a couple each panel.

The driver side dash trim should pop out no hassles.

The passenger side has two central "V" clips as papa smurf said. You need to remove the glove box and release the clips from the underside once the glovebox is removed. I repplaced mine and thats how i did it.

cheers

Awesome, thanks for the tips guys. I suppose my only question now is how does the glove box come off? o.0
I'll take another crack at this after work, see how it goes this time

So I worked out how to get the glove box off and everything else fell into place from there.
Thanks for you help guys!

Right there mate.
It's actually really easy to do, even first time you do it :)
I've covered mine with carbon fiber vinyl. Looks awesome.
