Gear surround - unbutton gear gator, tuck your fingers in behind the gear knob (by 2nd, 4th, 6th) and lift the rear first. Once released look underneath and unclip the electrical connector for the buttons. Finally lift over gear knob and away.
Centre console - remove radio to reveal screws. Remove heater nozzles to reveal more screws. There are a couple of screws on the bottom edge too. Then pull away from dash. Undo electrical connectors before removing.
Dash trims (x2) remove end plates of dash (open door - see in door jam between door card and dash) revealing one screw. remove screw then gently pull trim away from dash, its just on clips.
Steering wheel - turn steering wheel to 90 degrees from straight ahead, remove lower steering column cowl (4x screws I think) to reveal a small circular hole in the back of the steering wheel. Insert the biggest, longest flat point screw driver you can fit up here and twist to release the clip holding in the airbag. Rotate wheel 180 degrees and repeat on other side. This removes airbag. Can't remember how it goes from here but its obvious.
Door card bits are the most annoying - you need to remove the door cards to do this. you need to remove the handle surround, door grab / window switch panels and the courtesy light on the bottom before removing a load of screws around the card and then pull card off. Its plastic welded on so you have to pop the welds.
I can get eLearn door card instructions for exact reference if needed.
