I've never did it myself Jordy, but I'm sure someone here will tell you shortly, or direct you to a thread about it....

What kind of controls are you installing?

Hey, the dash in these beautiful creations are tricky. In order to remove the panel below the steering wheel you have to take off the front panel that houses the vents and surrounds your gauges.
to get that off you need to remove the top dash pad.
Step 1
remove driver side fuse panel
2) remove 6 plastic clips from the underneath of the dash pad. a thin piece of plastic six inches wide runs all the way across.
3) Remove screws holding dash pad and faceplate, I think there were six of these also. (you can't see them until the thin strip is removed in step 2)
4) remove dash pad, it is a little tricky getting it off the passenger air bag. Don't worry it won't hurt the bag. Then unsnap the and remove the face plate.
5) Then you should see the two screws that have been the cause of all this fun. remove these and the panel below the steering wheel will come right out.

I have had my dash off three times. These are the basic steps I have taken . Hope it helps!!!
