Hello, on most corolla's I have done,the black plastic shroud unscews from around the speedo/dash cluster and also includes the hazard/breakdown switch.The black plastic then comes out with stereo attached(usually)so be careful not the crack the plastic surround.In most cases you will not need to remove steering wheel but it will give more room to work with,if it is removed.Hope that helps.

Radio display is blank

If the radio works then the tiny miniature bulbs inside the radio are burnt out a common problem in GM cars and trucks. You will need to remove the radio from the dash and then take the radio circuit board out of the chassis behind the front display and unsolder the bulbs from the circuit board they are hard wired to, the bulb number is Radio Shack Part #7219

I have a kitten that has climbed into the dash board. How does my husband remove the dash? (That's what I get for trying to be a good person..LOL)

Which side is the kitten on, if it's on the passenger side you can remove just the glove box to gain access, if it's on the drivers side you can remove the bottom kicker panel to gain access from the bottom of the dash so you don't have to remove the whole dash. If the kitten made it's way behind the radio, you can remove just the trim around the radio and then remove the radio to gain access behind the radio.
Thank you for using fixya and please keep being a good person LOL.

How do I remove the fan switch to replace it on the dash under the radio?

Have your radio code before you pull it out with the right radio tool. This pull would involve removing this parts.
  1. Glove compartment
  2. Driver side panel
  3. Center top dash board
  4. Defrost switch carrier
  5. Radio unit
  6. Center lower half of dash
So I'd suggest go to your local public library and look for your car manual. It would be either Chiltons or Clymers manual, it's not as precise a Bentley VW Official factory repair manual. Yes it really involves taking all those parts out just to get to the rotary switch.
