Dash Fascia Removal
The first step is to remove the dash fascia, the covering that surrounds the stereo head unit
. To do this, move the tilt steering wheel all the way down and move the shift lever back. Next, disconnect the negative battery terminal. Then remove the ash tray and the two Phillips head screws behind it, as well as the two Phillips head screws in the instrument cluster bezel just above the speedometer and tachometer. With those four screws removed, the only thing holding in the dash fascia is a series
of pop fasteners. Starting from the ash tray end, pull the fascia out away from the dash. The fasteners will pop as you pull the fascia. Work your way along the fascia from the ash tray end to the end near the door, until the fascia is loose. Next, reach behind the fascia and disconnect all the electrical connectors
including cigarette lighter, aux power
outlet, clock, hazard switch, Passenger Air Bag Off indicator, dimmer, Traction Control switch, and any other electrical connectors. Each connector has a tab that needs to be pushed in order to release the connector. This part of the job is the most potentially frustrating if you have no prior experience. The first time it took me over a half hour; the second time took just a few minutes. Here is a link for directions for this from another site.
