You can see the (removed) from inside the car with the glove box removed, but you cant get to it.
You do have to remove the dash. Use the instructions from here:

Use a small flat head or something similar to remove the wiring harness.
Removing the actuator is a problem because the fasteners have tiny little heads and you can't use a screwdriver. Luckily, I had a tiny open end/Box wrench that fit perfectly. DON'T ATTEMPT THIS WITH OUT A WRENCH LIKE THIS! a ratchet probably wouldn't fit in there. Here is what I used:
It took a while but I finally got the two screws out and pulled the actuator off its little post. I put the new one on and tediously used the tiny wrench to tighten the screws. MAKE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN YOU DON'T CONFUSE THE OLD AND NEW ACTUATORS. Putting the old on back on would suck.
Once you re-attach the wiring, proceed to reassemble the dash as indicated in the dash removal instructions.
Follow the precautions to make sure the airbags don't explode, turn on the car and verify that the flapping noise is gone. It was on mine, so I am happy now.
Total time to complete task: An hour and forty five minutes. Good luck! Hope this helps!
