On the top of the dash .. you need to pop off the top cover panel, and there are a row of 8mm bolts along the top.
Dont miss the one under the left side it would be attached where the E-brake would be on an LX model.
There are a couple nuts under each sides kick panel, a couple bolts in the middle .. then you can drop the steering column, or disconnect the coupling and take it out with the dash ..
I usually take out both the driver and passanger side seats to remove the dash so you dont ruin them.

I posted a pretty thourough walkthrough a couple years ago. I actally found the thread. Look for my two posted that are the 3rd to last and last posts. This should help you find the bolts and other steps you looking for. I hope it helps.
