you need to take the front part of the dash off first(part that surrounds your radio/cd player)...once that is off you will see how to take the top tray out.

you need to get a pocket knife of flathead screwdriver and carefully pry the piece of plastic away. its hard at first then it pops right off

you cant be nice about it, its going to take a little force

the easier way is to get one clip loose, the one on the top right works for me.

then from the top start pulling and it pops out

open the ash tray, and pull up from the bottom of your dash bezel. This is the easiest method.

Yep. Don't be scared, it won't break.

There is a bolt under the steering wheel (something weird like 5.5mm). Then pull down.

yeah that one is a bit hard to get off then back on is worse, to get it back on i suggest trimming the curved piece that goes around the wheel(youll understand) so that it goes back in easier.

passenger side airbag cover im guessing your talking about the piece right above the glove compartment, in that case there are 2 screws mid way up on each side on the back its a b**** but after you get the screws out it just pops off, i left the screws out so that i can easily pop it off

as for the defroster i havent pulled those off yet
