Passenger Airbag cover insight

This being the second time I will be changing my airbag cover, I wanted to share this image. I have seen a couple threads up here recently wondering about how that airbag cover was fastened, and how to replace it. Particularly one about the rivets. Contrary to what the FSM says, you can indeed change an airbag cover without dismantling your entire dash. The rivets do not hold that airbag cover in place, as you can see from the image. They just hold the cover itself together. I'll take more images when I start the job.

Not pulling the whole dash is the easier way, to me. More contortions, but less work.
