It was seriously easy. I used a credit card and a flat head screw driver. The only tricky pieces are the vent bezels.

They're so so. I lost one of the clips on the back of the speedo bezel and one on the air vent. But other than that I didn't haven't real serious breakage. Just go sloooooowwwwww.

When you do it, don't forget to pull the tiny chrome rings off of your climate control and radio nobs!!!!!!

If I broke the clips, is it something that could be super glued? Even breaking one clip could cause vibrations with my exhaust.

Eh I don't think so. But the way the clips are you won't get any rattle. It goes 360 on each piece. And on the vent pieces there's dual clips. One set that clips to the vent(the entire vent assembly comes out like a cup). And one set that faces outward that clips to your dash. But if you're careful, I'm positive you can do it with little to no breakage. I mean if it's that bad. There's part numbers on the back of every piece to order a new one.

Never know. Maybe a lil plasti dip will keep them from rattling since it is rubberized.

I know I'm kinda digging up bones here, but I gotta say this is about to happen on mine as well. Any suggestions/recommendations to make the process less painless (i.e. break less clips)?

The clips aren't that bad I took all mine out when I installed my air gauge and painted the cluster. Pry them up just a hair pull. Just be patient

yeah, I'm with Tvan121 when it comes to chrome, I've gone after getting rid of it fairly aggressively from the start aside from my faux cap, and the interior trim is going to be one of my final stands. Now I only need the time to get it done...
