SOURCE: How do the Dash Panels come off?

Never done it, can't say. From everything else I have done to mine I will venture a guess that it is a big job.

SOURCE: Trying to remove the door

Are you talking about the door handle hinge? The door handle and hing do not need to be removed to remove the door panel. Remove the door handle bezel and the hole will be big enogh to come straight off with the door panel. See the picture below. This is the only diagram supplied in the service manual. It shows the bezel for the driver's door but it states that the rear door is similar. If you allready have the bezel off, or you are not talking about the door handle hinge, I don't know what you are talking about when you say "hinge thing"

I need to know how to change the ignition on a 95 Thunderbird LX


Contrary to the repair manual; you do not need to remove the steering wheel. Remove the bottom dash panel below the steering wheel and then the bottom black steering wheel cover (3 screws). You will see a 1/8 inch hole and pin below the lock set. Put the key lock in the neutral position and push the pin and remove the ignition lock set. Put the new lock set in the neutral position and insert it. Turn it to the off position which resets the lock pin.

How does the cd player stereo come out?


Remove the two end panels on the dash. These are the panels that are located on either end of the dashboard. Place a rag over the tip of a flat tip screwdriver and wedge the tip behind the panel. Then pry the end panel off the dash. Do this for both panels.Remove the nine screws holding the glove box in place. Remove the two screws under the side panel on the passenger side (removed in step 1), four inside the glove box, two under the glove box, and one in the bottom left corner of the glove box (you can only access it after removing all of the other screws and extending the glove box down beyond what is normally allowed with the other screws in). Remove the screws holding the dash on under the steering wheel. Remove the two under the panel on the driver's side panel (removed in step 1), three on the underside of the dash, one on either side of the steering column, and one near the bezel covering the stereo.Pull the dash off from around the stereo controls.Remove the clip and wiring for the hazard switch using a flat tip screwdriver.Remove the six screws holding the HVAC unit and stereo unit in place and pull the stereo straight out of the dash.

How to remove dashboard


1-Remove the vent/radio housing.
2-Remove the cover panels on either side of the dash that get cover when the door is closed.
3-Remove the panel under the steering wheel.
4- Remove glove box to open space inside of dash.
5-Remove four bolts and connector holding passenger side airbag and remove carefully.
6-Remove cover plate over shifter.
7-Remove the center console.(2 bolts under armrest and 4 screws-2 on either side of the console)
8-Disconnect the wiring harnesses on either side of dash.(White and black connectors. 2 on driver 1 on passenger.
9-Remove the four bolts holding the center of the dash to the floor.
10- remove two bolts on drivers side dash where cover was and same on passenger side.
11- Unbolt the steering column ( 2 bolts under the wheel) and let it rest on floor.
12- The entire dash will remove from the car as 1 piece and each component can be taken out from there.

It isn't worth it to fish for the bolts from the inside. Take the support bar out and work on it outside the car. much faster.

It seems confusing, but easy if you take your time

How do you remove the radio on a 2004 Monte Carlo SS


Begin sitting in the front passenger seat. Open the glove box. Find the screw attached to the dash board (on the left). Remove that screw. Move to the drivers seat. Remove the narrow panel that holds the light bulb below the steering wheel. There are two plastic clips that hold that piece on the car. Removing that panel reveals a few Phillips head screws. Remove those screws. With the drivers door open, locate the fuse panel. Remove that panel. You will see a few screws there, remove the lower one (or two, I can't remember for sure). Next, tilt the steering wheel as low as you can get it. Slowly (using your hands only) pry the panel just above the steering wheel outward toward yourself. Slowly move toward the radio pulling the panel toward yourself. Once you have freed the large panel, fish your hand in behind it to disconnect the hazard button (This is a must!!!). Once that has been disconnected, pull up on the panel to move it past the steering wheel (it is a tight fit). Once that it done, there are two screws holding the radio in the dash. Remove those screws as well as the radio antennae plug and the two wiring clips in the rear of the radio.

Removing and replacing the ignition switch


You will need the following tools:

Steering wheel puller Torx bits (get a set, you need 3 sizes) Inverted Torx ( a set is available at Schucks/Kragen/Checker Screwdriver A few zip ties Wire cutters

Start by disconnecting the yellow wire under the dash for the airbag. Now turn the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the underside of the steering wheel. You will have to insert a smaller size flat blade screw driver into the 4 holes on the back of the steering wheel and rotate them to release the airbag. Now remove the nut holding the steering wheel on and remove the steering wheel. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE AIRBAG MODULE!! Now remove the lower column cover with 2 Torx screws. You will now have access to 2 inverted Torx screws that hold the top column cover in place. Look on the top of the ignition cylinder housing and find the small hole. Insert a small Allen wrench into the hole and turn the key to "run" position and the ignition cylinder will come out, now the top cover will come off, giving access to the ignition switch. You will need the smallest inverted Torx bit for the 2 screws that hold the ignition switch in. You will have to cut a couple of zip ties to free the wiring. Now get a Torx bit and a 7mm socket and remove the lower dash panels to get access to the wiring harness. You will need the 7mm to unscrew a bolt that holds the connector together under the dash. Just follow the wiring to see what I mean. Once the connector is loose, you will see two plastic strips that run along side the connector. These are easy to remove and slide off, and are keyed so you cannot reinstall them wrong. Hope this helps.

I was getting frustrated trying to get the air bag off the wheel to do a column change out to a tilt wheel. The above worked perfectly for removing the airbag. However, the inverted torx bits can be removed with a good 6 point socket on a 1/4 inch drive ratchet as well. No need to buy a special tool.

Good luck
