    Hey everyone!
    I have been looking around trying to find a video on how to remove the trim panels in my 13' Tacoma. I was wondering if someone of you could help me out a little bit. I would appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Click my Sig Pic for my build thread. Too many to list here.
    Might try googleing taco tunes. Its mostly removal for audio stuff, but removal is removal. Pretty sure thats where I saw most of it done.

    Not sure if it will help for a 13 but there should be similarities.

    I found a video a long time ago when I had my 2011 and I am assuming that it's gong to be the same all the way around. From what I can tell nothing has changed from then til now. I just can't remember how to remove the panels. I don't want to do it guessing and break something.

    Haha! I just found that video. I'm looking to remove the trim around the air vents, the trim around the shifter. The silver trim on the bottom of the steering wheel.

    Now by looking at that video I know how to remove my door panels and change my speakers and tweeters lol.

    Haha! Well lucky I checked here. I couldn't figure out why the air vents wouldn't come out on their own. It appears I was doing it wrong from the start lol.

    Miscellaneous threads that I have found with removal of some interior pieces:

    Climate Control (no full pics but gives you the just of it for 2012+) http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...remove-2012-tacoma-climate-control-panel.html

    Center Console type stuff, and shifter as well I believe:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/245890-personalize-your-interior-cheap.html

    The shifter silver trim piece is the easiest. Just unscrew your shifter knob, and pull up on the corners of the trim piece carefully an it comes right out.

    I thought I bookmarked a thread showing how to remove the entire panel that surrounds the gauges but I can't find it.

    There was a video I seen long ago of how to take all those parts and pieces out. For the life of me I am not able to find it. I had seen the second video link you posted previous but when I was looking at the first link, it didn't show very much.
