HI,

Do I just pry the cover off the dash ? The cover that hides the airbag
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Don’t want to break it

HI,

Ok, it can be done thru that opening, but is very difficult as there is very little working room. The ideal way is to remove the dash.

Give me a few minutes to upload the directions for removing the passenger side airbag

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Understand, will do it without removing the dash if possible. Will remove the whole dash if I must

HI,

Ok, the finish panel you need to remove pulls off as it is held by snap retainers. Being 20yrs old, use a gentle but firm pulling motion to remove it as it is possible that the retainers are brittle and will break

RH and LH

Removal and Installation

1. Remove instrument panel finish panel by snapping it out of retainers.
2. To install, align retainers and press into instrument panel.

UPPER

Removal and Installation

1. Pull up to unsnap instrument panel upper finish panel.
2. To install, align clips and press instrument panel upper finish panel into instrument panel.

I have attached directions to remove the airbag and separate directions to remove the dash if needed

Is there a problem? I paid out of pocket for directions you requested and you ask for a refund? Were you unhappy or just want free directions
