Opening the dashboard


Recommended Posts

So, I've begun my electrical tracing of wires (after a headlight switch meltdown) to ensure that everything is where it's supposed to be and to track connectors that don't appear to have a home throughout the vehicle.

(1) In my Bentley manual for my 1984 911, it states to remove the screws at the end of the knee bar (in the manual it shows these screws), but I don't seem to have those on either left nor right of my vehicle - any ideas on how to remove it in lieu of these screws?

(2) Further it states to remove the upper dash by removing the vent screws (I can see those), and then the windshield before removing the dash. This seems a little anti-intuitive just to remove the dash. Is it necessary to take the window out first - hope not?

windshield comes out to get to those fasteners out

better plan on a new glass,too

Rats, I was hoping that wasn't the case. Sounds pricey just to remove the dash board... Maybe I'll trace from below instead (might just take longer).
