idk i been seeing a lot of people saying they want to see a "how to" to take the dash out, i was skimming the TSRM and i found the section they show you how to take it out, so i decided to share









one thing that isnt there, is that you need to drop the steering column inorder to get the dash out, i think there are 2 17mm nuts that hold it up

I've done it twice. It was much easier the second time. There is actually only 8 (I think) nuts holding it down. Popping the snap in things to me was the only tricky part. I broke one, but luckily had a spare.

yeah, i don't bag anything. i remember where it all goes at this point. (well, on my car anyway). so long as i do the job in the same week or so, bagging things just takes extra time.

if you don't have a good memory for stuff like this, bag/label might save you, though.

Plus, maybe he has some wire-hack-job done there, then it could be a real pain :)
The first dash I uninstalled (luckily didn't need the wires) had a serious mess there, so I just cut the bullshit out. My original dash though had only two wires I had to cut and later reconnect :)
And well...about the bagging thing....I had a lot of ''aftermarket'' screws there and well....

Some good reading, maybe

Just for anyone who wants to do it for the first time and still is unsure or not too confident about it after reading what the TSRM says, there are some write-ups on how to do it by people who have done it themselves. I haven't read through them thoroughly though, but it's good stuff. Try supracentral, or SOGI.

Yes it has been 11 1/2 years..........But Why TF would you need to remove the dead pedal?

And for anyone else that might be doing this to their daily, you could remove all of the attached pieces a little at a time during the week as you continue to drive the car, and do the dash removal on the weekend. It's a daunting task, but really not that bad once you get finished. It is just 8 bolts holding the dash in after all of the parts are taken off.

It's a bit harder to remove the kick panel trim with the dead pedal installed. That's pretty much the only reason.
