Sorry, but I can't even find mention of how to do it in the manual - I thought I'd seen it before but I could be wrong. Apparently, the passenger airbag cover panel comes out by prying with a flat object between the cover and the left a/c vents, but you break 4 clips in the process which have to be replaced and I still think this is a seperate part to the trim your talking about. I think there may be screws for the glovebox you can see when you open it, but again I'm not sure at the moment.
venom, I am pretty sure you worked it out... but for everyone else the glove box sort of clips out... its hard to explain, but you open it up, and it then sort of just levers out, really easy.
BTW vemon if you did get it, how did you go taking the strip out? cheers

As Steve_t mentioned, you need to carefully remove the Air bag panel, its held on at each corner by reaitining clips which are good for one use only and will snap when you remove the panel, they are readilly available from ford. (might be a good idea to disconnect the battery just in case)
Once you have removed the panel, the strip that sits on top of it is held on by 3 or 4 screws - i cant remember the exact number at the moment.
As the topic suggests, I'm after hints in regards to removing the plastic trim strip which sits on the dash above the passenger airbag, thinsg to do, look out for, etc.
If you are talking about the thin strip above the Airbag, this is bolted on and if you try to remove from the front you will stuff it real quick.
Remove airbag cover as suggested above, then remove Airbag assembly.
The clips you will break are P/N AU F04B26A around 45 cents each.
Disconnect negative of batterry before you remove air bag assembly.
I am sure you have sorted all this out already anyway!
