    Sorry mate, completely forgot to do a write up. Tools you will need:-

    8mm socket, extension and ratchet
    T25 Torx bit
    Allen key set (cant remember the specific size)

    With the T25 torx bit, i used 2 ratchet screw drivers, large and a stub version.

    Have a look on the rear of the facia your fitting, as thats an excellent guide of where the screws are located.

    With some of the screws you will have to use the allen key, others you'll be able to use the ratchet drivers.

    If you have climate control, there is no button underneath the unit like the haynes manual states, you just have to yank the thing out.

    Other than that, take your time as you dont want to drop any of the screws.

    Good luck

    No but be careful with airbags. They can explode and they are shockingly expensive to replace
