Thank you for the great photo........

I am aware of the other dash, but cannot remember or find procedure to remove.
I thought there was a screw inside the Vents & Guages & the dash snaps off, but I cannot remember.

If the Radio in the picture is "not" Factory & is Aftermarket
I suspect that the radio has a small trim plate going around the face & once removed, insertion of small flat tools on each side should release the radio to pull it out thru the front, so you would not need to remove the dash if replacing with same size

Hi sorry to take so long to reply as I was called away for a while. The radio is an after market but is fastened in the same way as the original radio was. So therefore the dash panel still needs to come off first. It has a screw above the air vents and another above the speedo guage. But not sure about the right hand bottom corner as it seems to be fastened on under the surounding dashboard some how.
