The Dashboard Wood is held on by 10mm plastic nuts up under the actual vinyl dash. You need to remove the glovebox linings, before attempting to get to the nuts. Good luck, Know what you're going through been there, done that...It's FRUSTRATING trying to re attach them!

Just pry them off with a butter knife or equivalent. The wood around the gearshift is more diffilcult. You must lift the front and pull toward the front to disengage the clips at the back.

Hi guys,
How do you remove the wood trim on the dash and doors?
I want to cover them with real carbon fibre as I'm dying my cream leather a more sporty red and black.
