I have removed all the parts you listed. The bracket is being held by a piece welded to the assembly that provides a support frame for the entire dash. Not sure what that is called. Do I need to move this whole assembly away from the firewall to remove the bracket. If so, how do do this?

That support frame should come out with the dash. Once everything is disconnected , you should be able to tilt the whole dash back. then lift it out. Let me look at what i sent you to make sure i didn't leave anything out.

 

Ask Your Own Kia Question

Here it is again complete. I purposely left out some steps before. Because i thought it would clear if the dash was tilted some. You may also have to pop off the A-pillar trim that runs along the windshield.( don't forget the bolt in the center of the dash.

If you have a digital camera take some and send them to me. You can use Rapidshare.com , Just send me the link.

I will try to get you some pics when I get home. I thought that was what needed to be done, just don't want to break anything!

Great pixs by the way. You only have about 4 bolts left to remove. I used one of the pix you sent ,to point out some things. Besides what i pointed out, you should have already removed

the bolts on each end of the dash, and the bolt under the cap in the center of the dash. When get all the bolts out. You should be able to tilt the dash back to the rear. To remove the dash. Tilt it back so you can get to the wiring connections on both side.
