There is really no how to . Thing best thing I can tell ya is just keep taking things apart . Keep all the hardware with each component removed . Before you know it you'll be removing the dash . I would suggest that while your there to go ahead and put in a new heater core . With a lot of luck , you can have the dash apart and back together in a day or so .

under the vent to the right of the radio theres a little hook thingy in the dash. there is a screw in there that needs to be removed

the panel under the steering wheel needs to be popped off. there are 2 screws in the bottom, and the top just clips in. you can fully remove it, or just pop out the 2 clips on the top and let it kinda chill there, wont hurt it.

once youve done that, your dash is freed up and can simply be pulled off. where you popped off the underside panel below steering wheel is a good place to start. on the lower left corner of the dash. then id open up your ash tray and cupholders, and work just work your around getting all the clips outs. it comes out pretty easy


hope that helps

if you mean the entire dash, heres everything that needs to be removed


1) Remove bezel around radio/heater controls -- directions in previous post
2) Remove ash tray --open it, and it just pops out. kinda lift up and pull and slowly work it out and if doesnt go easy. mine came out pretty easily though
3) Remove plastic panel from below cup holder -- plastic trim that goes at very bottom and wraps around the sides. just a couple clips, pulls out easily
4) Remove cup holder --several screws below and behind. need to remove radio bezel to access some screws
5) Remove both left and right side A pillars -- two bolts on each side where the handle is under those 2 little covers
6) Remove the front dash cover closest to windshield -- several clips all the way across. use a pry tool and pry up the entire front, then a few good tugs straight back towards you should get the rear clips out
7) remove two plastic end pieces on each side of dash that are only acessable with the door open
8) Remove the padded dash top
9) Remove instrument bezel and panel


ive never personally done steps 8 and 9, but just look for any screws or bolts, shouldnt be anything too complicated. the rest is fairly easy to do and dont present much of a problem. if you have any more specific questions about those parts, i can help you help ya, ive taken all that stuff apart several times

Thank you all. I am working on my Ram because the bottom flapper door that lets it blow air on the floor is broken and the dealer wants $700.00 to repair. I think that's a little high . The only problem is there is a metal brace right in the way of that flapper motor

Of course there is! hope you can get it fixed, and we're all for DIYs here. I just pulled the dash on my '07. best advice I can give is to organize nut/bolt/clips/screws into ziploc bags labeled with which part it came out of. That way there's no dreaded 'extra parts' when you're done.

CD...Don't you know that no vehicle runs right unless there are parts left over??? Just kidding. That's what I do with my 77camaro when I'm not working on the truck...LOL This whole customizing thing is EXPENSIVE!!! OH WELL..that's half the fun is not getting everything right now.

theres no such thing as extra parts

if you have stuff left over, then you just found a more efficient way to put everything together

haha you guys are funny...honestly ive put things in bags and all when I was doing the firebird...and I still ended up with extra screws and so on lol


...btw for future reference, more for stereo guys, check out this site. it gives you a good break down on all the dash stuff for when you do your stereos...it might help you out a little bit anyway so mind as well check it out.

...we use that site everyday at Hardcor Audio to take customers cars apart. Just click the install kit and hit instructions...scroll down till you find your vehicle and it will give you a good idea on how to get it all off.
