    Anyone ever removed a dash? i get stuck after about 5-6 bolts and cant get it out, i accidentally broke a Heater control arm and to replace it i either need to take the dash out or remove the temperature section, its suppose to pop out, but im paranoid to force it..

    (the section with the climate control, 2 arms [temp, fan] and the buttons, air con, vents so forth)

    Its the easiest dash in all of automotive history to pull out.

    Drop the column, and there are something like 4 screws holding it in place. Disconnect a ground wire behind the cluster and unplug the harness, disconnect the heater cable, and it falls out.

    you serious? ive got 3 visible bolts...

    1 either side (near door) and 1 centre bolt (below window inside vent), so u saying i undo the steering wheel column and 4 more bolts appear or 1 more? this is the non-vtec version, im guessing ur assuming ive removed the speedo clusters and so forth, or isnt that neccesary?, basically wat happened was a broke an heater- control -arm and its a pain to fix, i figured taking the dash out completely might be easier. Anyone got any pictures or a drawing of the screw/bolt holes. Anyways any help you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated, had a bit of a headache with my car lately, my front end (invader 2 kit) didnt fit and i had to cut it in 1/2 and re-fibreglass everything, move my headlights forward, all this unforseen shit. Thanks

    You definently need to drop the column to get the dash out. Its very easy though. 2 or 4 bolts and it'll fall into the floor. I'll take a look in my haynes or chilton when I get home, one of those shows how to take the dash out, and following those directions, it took me all of 10 minutes.

    ok, i get the point, although i have a RHD civic, Australia not America. Im assuming their the same, my dash just seems "caught" on something, thats why i havent taken it out.
