  • How To... Remove the dashboard

    Please find this comprehensive guide to this joyful task in the following link... it is honestly not as bad as I thought initially.

    Good work Paul! What is the level of sound deadening on the dash itself and underneath it?

      making sure you park up somewhere you can open both doors fully really helps

      how come you've got V6 instrument sin there Paul?

          Can you get Passenger airbag out without removing the dash?

          One thing i've learned we are way behind the Scandinavians!

            If i remember correctly, you have to remove the glovebox, and than you will see one torx bolt,

            undo the bolt (it's a long one) and than you should be albe to pull the airbagunit out.
            Take note that there are 2 plugs in the back of the airbag that need to be unplugged carefully.

              if you have cruise control, the ECU will be screwed to the dash behind the glove box - needs unplugging before dash can come out

                  Didn't take enough photos as I went on the S2... Had to nip out and take some snaps off the V6 dash to complete the guide.

                  Good point on the doors actually.

                    Also a good point there... should really add that to the guide. If anyone has pics of that and any other photos of how/where the airbags connect that would be good also.

                        Also take the chance to replace/upgrade the front loudspeakers in the dash whilst it's easier with the dash out.

                          They'd be easy enough with dash in place unless going up from 10cm diameter - but yes its worth a thought.

                          Next step for me is to try and identify a lot more of the dreaded wiring plugs on the loom under there and associate them with the schematics - oh joy !

                              Airbags have a reserve battery, but yes I should add a disclaimer about this for airbag models in case they are especially sensitive.
