dude u gotta be quite assertive with it, there are times when it might feel like the dash is gunna snaap, but u just gotttta keep pulling,

the method i used was to push up from under the foot wells then kinda try and pull it out, if u can see the the 2 clips that hold the side of the dash and the way they clip on it might help understand they way the top ones work.. they are a little different though i think,  

if all else fails take the long black air vents out the top of the dash, and maby get a long screw driver to get a bit of leverage on em, u can just about see them thorough the vents

try not to let them clip back in once u have released them, and although u might not want to  be prepared for them to snap, there easy enough to change,

hope that helps
My cars only as fast as the people pushing it

chillin... chillin....... chillin.........boooOOOOOOST
