    remove the ash tray with the single screw. then pull the facia from the bottom, depending if u have a after market headunit u may have to pop the covers off the side spacers and remove a single screw from each side here and the rest is just clips behind that will pop off as u pull (if u have air con there maybe a couple more screws)

    Sorry dude, I did get your message but I've been stacked out the last few days.

    Remove headunit... rempove 2 screws from behind where the headunit sits in.

    Remove ash tray, remove screw from where the ash stray was covering.

    Pull it off.
