Would I be able to get to them easier if I removed all of my dash panels?
Here is what I did. on the right side of it, remove the a/c vent. There will be 1 or 2 screws halfway up and a large piece of the vent will come off. I still couldn't get my torx in there so I just used an allen wrench. For the left side it's a lot harder. I had a friend grab the main piece of the dash and the center a/c vents and pull as hard as he could towards the driver's side while I stuck my hand up through where the glove box could be and used the allen wrench again. That got to tight as well so I got a small pair of pliers and just gripped the round head of that torx bolt as hard as I could and turned. It's slow but works. Still took us about 3 hours to get it out but it worked.
Once everything was out I went and bought some bolts with regular hex heads to put back on. Mine is actually still apart so I'm not sure how they will work. Can't be worse than the torx bolts. The size of bolt you will need is M6-1.00x20.
