Default lowe dash removal 05 LS430

Does anybody have detailed instructions how to remove the lower dash , Im trying to replace the trunk/hood release light bulbs in the switchs?
I have the mirror switch out , and theres a screw behind that,then about 3 or 4 small screws way at the bottom , then the hood release bracket , theres two , and the emergency release has two , but the adaptive headlight switch seems to be sticking, any help would be appreciated

hahaha oh Johnny! I'll take some pics for you as soon as I'm back to the states.

But the AFS button isn't held by any screws. Since you took the whole piece that has the parking sensors out, put your hand in and push the AFS button out. It's just stuck in place, was a bit hard to remove, but just give it a good nudge and it should be out.

But removing the AFS button has nothing to do with reaching the fuel and trunk buttons you are trying to disassemble.

Wish I took some pics.

My best advice is you should carefully read your Owner's Manual. If you don't have one, that should be your first purchase. The bulbs behind many switches will have to be ordered or obtained at the dealer.
