    Can anyone tell me if there are any tricks to removing the dash. I've removed the lower half but the top will not come out.

    Cheers, Kez

    ke or ae?

    if its a ke there will be bolts and screws to take out everywhere.. the main ones i can remember are 1 or 2 on each side. and 5 or 6 down the middle underneath.. atached to a cross bar. just pull on it iff its attached in spots then check around for screws/bolts.

    im sure ae wont be too much different.

    dont forget the screws behind the a/c adjuster

    Yeah sorry AE.

    These are the bolt I'v found thanks to rich_86. But I can't find the other 1 next to the square vent your talking about.

    Is there any other bolts. The dash still feels pretty soild in there.

    You need to pull the knobs off the switches and unbolt them in order to pull the cluster out. The service manual has step by step instructions on how to do it.
