I need to remove/replace the vertical dash panels, the ones with the ac/heater vents in them, and wanted any tips and suggestions so I don't damage them in the process. Anyone have any experience doing this?

If you want to remover the vents above the radio. Remove the radio (use VW or Ford radio removal tools) and you'll see two screws. Remove those and then disengage the two retaining tabs at the top of the vent that secure it to the dashboard.
