Various projects for the Volvo C30 require removing the lower dashboard panel, such as replacing the brake light switch. Removing the panel is super easy and should not take more than an hour. When re-installing the panel, take note of the plastic arms mounted on the panel. The fingers of the panel should slide right into the dashboard if you have everything lined up correctly.

Loosen and remove the two T25 Torx screws (green arrows) holding the lower dashboard panel to the vehicle.
