the 4x4 shifter was a PITA for me...
Me too - the correct way to do it is to pull straight up, but it's on there good. I recommend using gloves - I went at it a while with bare hands and couldn't get a good enough grip.
You shouldn't need to pull the dash to do the line-x - they can get the spray up pretty far underneath the dash without pulling it. You do need to pull the console, however, in order to get the one piece wiring harness out.
I think the disconnect the battery advice is correct. I have the factory service manual and there are specific instructions for disconnecting the airbag sensors under the passenger seat - I think the first step was disconnecting the battery and waiting a few minutes before touching anything. Be careful when you have the passenger seat out, apparently the sensors are easily damaged.
