There are two nuts on the back side of each end on the bottem corner. If you have air it is easiest to take off the vents.

by the windshield? Or closer by the cluster tabs?
I thought it might have something to do with the speaker screws (Last pic)
Or maybe the two vents from the heater..
so do i need to take the vents off?


I dont have AC only heat/defrost

Looking at the 2nd photo on the right side where you have the glovebox door removed if you reach through the opening and then to the right that is where the retaining nut is on the bottom corner of the dashpad that Randy is referring to. Then on the 3rd photo on the left side pull out the heater control panel a little bit and remove the retaining nut on the bottom corner of the dashpad that Randy is referring about. Good luck.
