Under glove box strip and light rail are easy, just a torx headed screw under the end panel and they clip out.

Not done the centre panel, sorry.

Thanks will have a good look the weekend
Arm yourself with a torx 25, a 20 and a star 10 and you can strip and rebuild your T5 - be systematic and don't force anything as you'll find that sometimes the bit you want out is trapped by another panel that's trapped by another......once you've got it all apart and finished swearing - you'll think - that was well put together

Take the oval end panel off of the dash by the drivers door, remove the screw there, remove the trim panel around the light switch and just keep undoing torx screws as you find them. You'll need to remove the flat panel above the pedals and the the whole trim around the gearstick comes out, it's pretty easy to figure out eventually and you might learn some new swear words.

If you're like me you'll find loads missing and end up visiting TPS for more screws and fixings.

Good luck.

Hi. Thankyou for that. I look forward to seeing your handy work. Wondering though,
what preparation you did to the cards. Also what spray you used/was it from a can or
Did a spray shop do it for you? Any plans for the dashboard ? I fancy doing the lot in
The coming months.
