Mind of Toyota interior plastic clips claws assembly robots manual

Guess what comes off first, then pry and yank on it until enough clips and claws break and the part bends and/or breaks off enough pieces to come off. Repeat w/ next part...etc.

Just kidding, but don't expect shop manual to really nail how to do this stuff copacetic. Miniature circular blowup drawings of clips and claws will make you cry. Car was designed only to be snapped together in one sequence by robots.

Wish I would have know of the Yaris BS panel removal fiasco prior to buying. Toyota is getting as bad as Honda.
Even changing bulbs is a BS grab so you'll take it back too Toyota, $$$. Definetly my last Toyota.
