How do you remove the dashboard

I read the install guide, but that just kinda shows you a picture of what it looks like. So can anyone tell me how to remove it? I pretty much figure if i look around and take off a whole bunch of bolts then magically it will come off. I plan on dyamatting it and while the dash is off, cleaning up all my wiring thats be done beinhd that area. Any help would be great

Try READING the install guide I though it was pretty clear. Don't just look at the pictures, read it.

And good luck on your project

^^ that "other crap" is what you're going to have to deal with when you remove the dash. It's not just shit thrown in for fun. I'm not sure you realize what youre getting into. SO much stuff is connected to that dash. If you can't disect that diagram don't count on getting the dash out and back in without fucking something up.

not trying to hate on you. But taking out the dash is a really big project. Print that diagram out and spend some time in your car with it figuring it out. Know what I mean? Be prepared for the job. It's a lot bigger than you think.

That whole harness needs to be un-bolted from the dash before it will come off. So it will take awhile after you get un-bolted from the car itself.

It's pretty easy it took me a few hours to remove mine... juss make sure to unplug the battery first so the air bags wont go off... the only way to take it off really is to juss go under there n' do it... like i did thumbsup

I did it recently. Just remove all bolts that may be connecting it to the car. THEN look around and disconnect the whole wiring cable(s) in the back they are screwed in and attached to it. you'll know what I'm talking about.
