So just bought a 2018 CX3 from Copart with some front end damage. New bumper, bonnet and near side wing needed but all drives fine.

The one thing that seems like a big job is changing the steering wheel and dash airbags. Seen a set on ebay but wanted to ask if there is anyone on here with experience of taking the dash board out?

Also whilst the dashboard is out, i will be fitting the apple car play upgrade that i have seen on Ali Express ( ... Redirect=y)

Any views on this as well would be very hand.

Did you get any help with regards to this or at least managed to get it sorted??
I've literally just taken the dash out of my CX3 (albeit, not the correct way) and could afford to be rough but I've another CX3 I need to remove the dash from to fit into the one I have just removed and could do with some help!
I am unsure if the dashboard needs to come out as the skin itself or along with the steel brace.

Can't find anything on the internet to help!

For some of the trickier bolts I had problems with I'm curious to whether the screen needs to be put to do it leaving the brace in!
