for the plastic pieces just pull them off, if u need get a flat head screw driver behind it for a little more leverage.

center piece is two screws and pull, door pieces just pop them out, as for the squealing probably a belt

pop up the piece around the shifter, take out the two screw right under the ledge below the headunit, pull out some and reach behind to push in te clips and pull that side out.
