How to remove this panel?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

Just wanted to know if anyone knows how to remove this big top panel from the dash? I tried everything but no success, don't want to break anything down, also, there seems to be an airbag under it, don't want to get it on my face...


Thanks in advance,

It has some scratches on it and I am able to get a new one for next to nothing :)

Everything else off...

1. Two silver brackets

2. Top air vent which is between them

3. Speedo surrounding visor

4. Upper glovebox hatch (how to remove it?)

5. Maybe also this speedo surrounding (if yes, how to remove it?)


Anything else to remove?

Best regards, Alex

why dont you get the new one and have a look at the underside of it to see where the clips or screw holes are?

then just keep taking bits off until you work out how to get to those spots.

also, i wouldn't remove it if theres an airbag under there. i dont know if its safe or not, but personally i wouldn't mess with that.

Removing bits one by one without knowing how are they attached isn't what I'd like to do. Damaging the parts wouldn't be nice...

I've removed my steering wheel twice and had to remove an airbag also. If you know what you're doing, everything should end up fine :) The problem is, at the moment I don't know where and how is it placed under the panel...

Best regards, Alex
