Tools

  • Ratchet
  • 7mm socket
  • Flat-head screwdriver

Removal

Step 1

Remove the bolt covers. There are 2 bolts holding the dash down in the center of the dash. They are covered by small, square plastic pieces. Use the flat-head screwdriver, insert it in the groove, and gently pry in and up. The pieces should pop right out.

Step 2

Remove the bolts. (I will try to add the specific socket size you need later – it is metric) The bolts are normal thread, so loosen them counter-clockwise.

Step 3

Unsnap the dash cover. The rest of the dash top is held down with metal snaps. Gently work your way along the dash top unsnapping the top. There are also a couple of pieces of velcro in the back of the dash, which will detach easily as you pull the dash out, after unsnapping the metal snaps.
