ok these are challenging to do as the worst part of this job is getting the new antenna cable into the passenger side compartment then make a 90 turn which the wire will help withyou need to be very patient and you can do this jobok here is phase 1 to remove the upper part of the dash If equipped with air conditioning (A/C), set the air flow control to the instrument panel (IP) vent position.Apply the parking brake to prevent the vehicle from moving.If the transmission is automatic, move the shift lever all the way down.Tilt the steering wheel to the full down position.Remove the IP cluster trim plate bezel.Remove the end panels. The left panel is shown, and the right panel is similar.Remove the right side air outletsRemove the assist handle by depressing the release tabs accessed through the air outlet duct holes.Remove the windshield pillar garnish moldings.Remove the bolts retaining the panel to IP assembly.Lift the trim panel up to disconnect the electrical connector (1) to the ambient light sensor on the underside of the trim panel.Remove the trim panel from the IP assembly
