If you're still looking for this info, I did the Euro Switch a couple of days ago.

I ordered a 5-piece plastic trim removal set from Amazon. I'm a Prime member so two-day shipping was free.

I started on the left side of the trim using the thinnest tool and worked the left side loose, then I inserted the tool between the trim and the dash and worked the right side loose. You don't want to pull the left side out too much or it will put pressure on the pins on the right side. Once both sides are pulled out a little you can insert the tool at the top and then just pull it straight out.
