I have a 1986 Mazda 626 LX 2 door coupe. I need instructions on how to remove an old worn front dash and replace it with a comparable one.

sorry for the delay............

I can post a Diagram from the Factory Service Manaul
It states:
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
After disconnecting the negative battery cable, remove the parts in the numbered order shown in the image.
Installation is the reverse order of removal.

.

Then it shows a numbered Diagram
.

Will that help?

Let me know if that will help

Where are the diagrams? I understand that you have them available, but without having access to them I am not sure my problem is resolved.

No, I don't think that will help me with my project. I am trying to remove and replace the front dash. You have not given me any direction to proceed. Thank you for your time and response.

As I posted:

.

Then it shows a numbered Diagram
This Diagram shows "by number" what to take apart
.

I also stated, these cost me $$
So if you do not want to commit so I do not "give it away"
not a problem.............
Thanks

Maybe I was not clear with my question. All I need is the steps for removing the front dash. I will install the new dash w/wires attached in the order that I disconnected from the old dash.

This is a single "numbered" picture that may or may not do you any good
It comes from the 1986 Factory Service Manual, which in those years were NOT very articulate & only provided a "reference" with NO "specific" screws or meanings to remove Components.
Sorry to be unhelpful, but it is a 1986 ( 30 years old) & Service Manuals / Diagrams have came a long way since then.
Just trying to help with limited info by the Manufacturer
