Yes. Somebody has done that.OK, I've decided to pull the dash and fix the leak to the outside so I won't get wet carpeting any more. Anybody ever done this on a 94?
It’s been at least 10 years since I pulled that style dash, so i can’t give you a fully detailed write-up...
In the engine compartment, near the brake booster... find the big white connector. Unbolt the 10mm bolt in the center and unplug it. Push the 3 tabs in around the part through the firewall and push the connector into the cab.
In the cab:
Drop the steering column, there’s 1 bolt above the column through the aluminum bracket that you need to remove.
Open the glove compartment all the way past the stops... disconnect the antenna wire staring you in the face and the vacuum connector near there. (IIRC, there’s a harness connector over there also, maybe behind the kick panel.)
Pull the instrument cluster bezel and cluster, disconnect the speedometer cable.
There’s bolts on both lower corners of the dash.
There’s a few bolts across the top by the windshield.
There may be one bolt in the center all the way at the bottom of the dash, going into the firewall... I can’t remember for sure.
There’s 2 cables from the HVAC controls yo the HVAC box that need to be removed.
You’ll probably need to remove the kick panels and the a pillar trim.
That should get you pretty close... there maybe a few more connectors or bolts. That doesn’t include anything that the previous owners added or modified over the years. I used to be able to pull that style dash in under 30 minutes.
I used an extension on the end of my 1/4" drive impact gun with a straight bit. The extension is about 16" long. It doesn't go exactly straight onto the nut but worked for me.Did you use a swivel or just the extensions? I only ask because this is a really tight spot and the the angle looks funky.
It has been a few years since I did it. If I recall, I believe I was able to do about 98% of the remove/reinstall in one day. It took extra time because I added some extra wiring.The harness stays attached to the back of the dash. You only unhook a few connectors.
