My 2011 DB9 Volante has faded and cracked wood on the ski slope (dash panel) and the navigation door trim. I plan on sending them to Madera Concepts in California to be refinished. Does anyone how how to remove these panels? Is it a DIY project or does it need to be done by a trim / top shop. Thanks for the help. Logan

I looked at the Aston 1936 video but it is only for the leather dash panels. I am looking for information on pulling the center wood ski slope panel and the navigation door panel.

You have to work from the back seat area forward. Remove the leather per instructions on the 1936aston website and you will begin to see the fasteners needed to be removed to get access to the entire waterfall area. I've done it several times.. Not as scary as it seems. Just take your time and watch the corners of the ridgid panels as they can scratch their adjoining panels when working them loose. Good luck.

Some YouTube videos are crude but effective on this issue.
