    This issue deals with the area above the cupholder. I want to end up with the little compartment on top of the dashboard removed.

If you are looking to get at the section from the cupholder down to the cigarette lighter, start with the screws you can access when the cupholder is pulled out. If I remember correctly, after those are out you can pull the rest slowly out from there.

What is the cause of rattling noise in the engine compartment? Nothing shows on the dashboard.


Maybe a Tool that was left in the Engine Compartment? A Heat Shield that has come loose?

What were you doing JUST BEFORE the noise started? Did someone work on the car? Have you checked the Oil Level?

How do you remove dashboard on a 2002 senta


Open the top compartment and grab the inside of that compartment. Pull that and the compartment and the vents will come towards you and out. There are wires attached, set the compartment up on the dash with out stretching the wires too far.
There are two philips screws that you need to remove. One is on the bottom left hand corner of the left vent, and the other is on the bottom right hand side of the right vent.
Grab the radio and pull, the bottom plastic bezel will fall out. Set that aside.
There are two more philips screws. One on the bottom left hand corner of the heater controls, and the other is on the bottom right hand side of the heater controls.
You can now pull out your radio. There is a plug on the backside of the radio and you will need to unplug that.
Good luck!

When I start my heater it makes a ticking noise


Does the ticking come from the top of the dashboard close to the defrost vents I'd say about the middle of the dashboard? If so it may be you vent door actuator(switches the door to either blow cold air or warm air) that has gone bad and needs to be replaced, the only thing is that it's located on top of the air distribution box and in order to get to it, you have to remove the dashboard which is really a huge undertaking. I've had the same happen before to me on a Lincoln Town car. All i did was unplug it at the time since it never stopped once I turned on the AC or heater.

Steam coming out of vents and water runnind down inside of dash


Your heater core has corroded through. You need a new heater core. You may be able to get by temporarily, with bypassing the heater core hoses, located in the engine compartment. These hoses carry coolant heated from the engine, to the heater core. You remove the hoses from the core, and put a pipe in the middle, connecting the two hoses together using hose clamps.

Should there be a cool morning, or if you need the defroster, you won't have warm air. Just a temporary fix.

2001 156 Alfa T Spark heater problems


Sounds like the flaps on the heater box are not moving. you will need to check the cables to see if they have come off or if they are seized.
The heat problem could be a blockage in the heater matrix. Try flushing the matrix out with a hose from the engine compartment side.
Note: you will need to bleed the system of air after doing this.
