Yeah, just get a flathead screwdriver and pry them out...they come out fairly easy. Where the hazards switch is, unplug it from the switch and push it forward, it pops out. The driver side vent is a PITA, and if you remove the vent from the AC blower, you will have a lot of fun getting it back on...so be weary of that. The center bezel comes out from below, if you decide to paint that, lmk and I'll tell you how to take it off. The part around the headlights switch, I haven't taken mine off yet, but there is a screw you have to take off, underneath the panel. You will have to remove the lower panel to take that one off. It no big deal, just for 8mm screws. LMK if you need any help, I'll show you how to get them of. I'll post some pics of the interior of mine that I have painted to give you an idea.
