How do you take apart the dash?

I want to take some of the dash peices out and paint them black. I know how to get the climate controlls and head unit parts out, but I dont know how to get the parts out with the air vents. Also is there any way to remove the silver bezles around the guages?

It's better to be pissed off then pissed on.

NO!

If you want it black then paint it, DO NOT stick ANYTHING in the oven! Good instructions can be found in the tutorial PDF on prsguages.com

It is actually quite the process. for the gauge bezels, there are two screws under the top lip that come out. for the piece under the climate controls...well that one is a good one. lol you have to take out just about every other piece of trim, center console, piece under the steering wheel, glove box, its all gotta go. but they are all either snap in or snap in with a couple 10mm bolts. not too hard at all.
