Dash trim piece removal

Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

The dash is one big piece. The 3 trim pieces are held in by about a dozen screws. The 'proper' way is to remove the dash, then the screws.

Some guy took a drill and drilled the heck out of the plastic trim and was able to get it out from the front of the dash. On Rennlist they say if you can pull on the trim then the screws will pull through the dash or pull out of the back of the trim, or something like that.

In this picture of a dash the trim has been removed. You can see the holes for the screws. Jeff

I have also heard about the pull out the front technique. It is hinged on the fact that you pop out one side of the head at a time and that you take your time so that the hole is not masacred.

SPR....what exactly did you try? I'm trying to get up courage to do it. I figure I'll ruin the OEM strips in the process???? :(

I tried prying them out with a screwdirver = flathead. And no luck I was pretty worried while doing it so I didn't go that far into it and I didn't want to risk damaging the surrounding dash, i.e. indentations etc.
