Great write-up, just a correction for you:

To avoid breaking clips and grommets when removing the trim from the dash you should start at the edges and work inwards.

Trim was off. One of plastic grommets refused to let go of the metal stud. So It's ripped off.

Not much room to work with and the blade was too flexible. A stiff screw driver shaft was needed.

It's off but the left grommet ripped.
Start at the doors and pull the strips off, working inwards towards the centre to avoid ripping out or breaking clips.
