You can do it like this. Let me know if you have questions.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait at least 90 seconds for models equipped with an air bag.
CAUTION Some models covered by this guide may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS.
  1. Remove the fuse box cover from under the left side of the instrument panel.
  2. Remove the heater control knobs.
  3. Using a screwdriver, carefully pry off the heater control panel.

How do I take the instrument panel off? ford fiesta 1983


There are screws on the bottom side of the dash pad, within the bezel, that should be all that is needed. Carefully lift the dash out, and disconnect the power connectors. removing these usually takes a torx bit. Similar screws will allow access from the back of the dash gauge set to locate the bulbs...if it is a digital dash, it may not be servicable.

Accessing the speedometer cable to lubricate on 1990 F-150


You can do it one of 3 ways...
a. Remove the Instrument Cluster from in front of the wheel, Lubricate
b. Remove the Cable from Under the dash and Lubricate
c. Remove the Cable from the Transmission and Lubricate.

Removing BOTH ends and cleaning first from Pressure TOP to Transmission is highly recommended and injecting a Light Lithium Grease I have found to give the best results but if you are having a problem with the Speedometer Cable itself... They are inexpensive and easy to replace. That is what I would do if it was making noise.. Less than $30 for a new cable

Installing Dash light bulbs in a 1993 S-10 Blazer


To replace the blubs you have to take out the insterment cluster. This is done by romoving the light switch trim plate and disconnect the wirering harness. The remove the A/C heater control panel. Remove the plastic trim from around the insterment cluster. The unbolt and remove the insterment cluster and uplug the wires and the speedometer cable. This speedometer cables can be a pain in the **** but depress the spring clip and pull. The bulbs are accessed from the back of the cluster.
Bulbs in this cluster don't burn out very often and if none of the bulbs don't work it probley isn't the bulbs. In this cause make sure the dimmer switch is turned up if it is play with the switch see if the dash light flicker.
Oh also in the mauals they always tell you to disconnect battery when pulling electrial apart.

Half of my dash lights work the other half dont


Depending on which part of the dash, if it's the odometer/speedometer back light or air temperature console ( center of the dash ) back light, you need to open and remove the covers and trims around these parts to gain access to small 12v light bulbs, you can easily pull 'em out of the socket and insert the new ones in place. you can find car light bulbs in Auto Zone or any other car parts dealer shops. Good Luck

Does the dash have to come off to access the air bag module or can you access it from under the dash


Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya! In order to access the air bag module on the 1996 Taurus the entire dash must be removed and the air conditioner refrigerant must be pumped out. I hope this answers your question. Regards, Joe

How do you remove the dash board on a grand marquis 1996


It is best to remove the front seat then remove the outer trim work on the dash which are fastened with clips. Then remove the screws which hold the heater/AC controls and also the dash panel such as speedometer etc. Remove the lower plastic shield from around the steering column and disconnect the transmission gear position indicator cable. Remove the plastic covering between the steering column and the drivers knees. Their are mounting bolts in the dash and under neath as well and also barbed fasteners. Remove the steering wheel column mounting bolts and it's support brackets. Lower the steering column to the floor. Remove the front door coverings located near the door hinges. Be carefull not to break the fasteners. They pry out of the door weather stripping and then you lift up on them. This will give you access to the lower dash mounting brackets.
With the steering column lowered remove the plastic trim under the windshield. It pops out and givces you access to the front dash mounting screws. disconnest the headlight photo cell control, disconnect the clock, radio and all other pigtail connections that would otherwise interfear with removing the dash. I remove the speedometer electronic cluster as well. Disconnect the AC/heater upper and lower duct work. They are generally fastened with screws and and you have to look for them.
The dash is fastened by the previously mentiond screws located below the windshield and by bolts located near the door which can be seen when the trim is removed also by lower bracket that are braced and is easily identified. These bolts heads are # 10 metric. I have probably forgotten a couple of items but this should get you through the worse of it.
The Mercury Grand Marquis and the Crown Victoria both tend to have blend door problems for the climate control and the dash has to come out to access the blend door control.
