Hi there,Is the column out of the way?If you do believe everything is out of the way and unbolted, it may still feel held in by three plastic locating lugs across the front that you can not access.A good sharp tug will allow it come out.A big job for someone at home.I've done a few, I don't think you will find a video.Hope this helps.Gary

No, you don't need to touch the windscreen or any trim.The first one I did in 2007 I had the same trouble, and although we could see how it works, didn't want to break anything.We ordered a screen and moulding, had the screen cutout, then we could see the 3 lugs.They are datum pins, and hold the panel before the bolts go in.Have taken the passengers air bag out?Gary

Hi Leigh,I have had a read of SI.There is a bolt each side at the base of the A pillar, top of dash, small trim covers the bolt.Have you taken out all the little bolts that hold the panel to the frame?The steel work behind doesn't come with the panel, too hard to do it that way.We'll also talk tomorrow.Gary
