Dent in dashboard above glove compartment

I've created quite a dent in my boyfriend's 96 prelude.. its on the the passenger side on the top of the dashboard above the glove compartment. theres a smile rectangular panel in the center thats dented in. No airbag went off or anything, but he told me it's ruined and could possibly cost thousands to fix because of the airbag.
Should I be looking for an entirely new dash? Is there a way to get the dent out without destroying anymore of his car? what can I do?
Thankyou

There most likely 2 blend doors and most of the time you can't get to one because it's further under the dashboard while one is fairly close to the glove compartment.
If it's not the one near the glove compartment then you most likely will have to remove your dashboard to get to the second one.

Location for the door lock relay on a 1993 olds ciera. It is not on the passenger side kick panel above the glove compartment. Does anybody know where it is?


It appears that the relay is located on the passenger side, behind the glove box, higher up close to where the bottom of the windshield meets the frame. Happy hunting.

1993 Toyota Corolla Dx: driving over labor day weekend, had the AC on for longer than i've normally had it on and noticed water on my passenger side floor mat. Then i looked and it was leaking from...


The drain on your evaporator core housing is most likely plugged. Condensation on the evaporator core drips down into the plastic housing and drips onto the ground through a hose on the firewall on the
passenger side.

Find the small hose on the firewall in the engine compartment. You should be able to pull off that
hose and see if its stopped up. If the hose is ok, you may need to remove some of the ac ducts
under the dash to get to the evaporator core housing to unclog the drain hole.

I have no doubt that thats the problem.

The heater blower in my 2002 sentra is only woking when on the highest setting...do you know what the problem could be?


The blower resistors have gone bad and needs to be replaced.

The 2002 Nissan Sentra blower motor resistor is located near the blower motor itself, which can be found under the dashboard, on the passenger side of the car.

To access it, you have to remove the glove compartment and the isolation panel that covers the bottom of the blower. Do the following steps:

  1. first, locate and open the glove compartment on the passenger side;
  2. remove the four upper screws and slide the door lock bracket out;
  3. pull out the two pins at the inner bottom corners of the compartment;
  4. take out the glove compartment assembly;
  5. remove the two screws retaining the isolation panel and slide the later out.
Looking under the dashboard, you can now see the blower motor and, on its left side, near the firewall, the resistor block brown connector.

To take out the blower motor resistor:
  1. remove the white plastic bracket that faces it;
  2. unplug the brown connector;
  3. remove the two screws on the resistor's socket;
  4. pull the resistor block out.
The resistor block is actually a PCB ("Printed Circuit Board"). The traces printed on this board have different electrical resistance, and are used by the control assembly to vary the speed of the blower fan.

I believe Auto Zone or Parts Source has the blower resistor you need. Good luck
