How do you remove interior trim

I know there are probably posts on this and if that is the case a link would be very helpful. As of right now I have not found any info. How do you remove...

A, B, & C Pillars
steering wheel inserts
Shifter insert
Circle gauge surround
Ashtray
Radio surround
Cup holder lid
etc etc etc...

I just bought 2 yards of Neffywrap and plan on making it a weekend project but first I need to know how these parts come off without breaking them.
