you have to remove those black trim plastic pieces then remove the two bolts and if its an automatic place it in 1st then pull the dash off o and the lights just put the lights on and pull fast to remove the knob then the dash should pull/ pop off

Yea they just come right off there just held in by black pin things (don't know what they are called). Is all you have to do is take a screw driver or key or knife or some thing and pry it off. Then there is 1 bolt under each one like stated earlier.
