08 Dash removal

I can't find a good write up on the removal of the dash. I remember one that had a photo of the dash itself with the bolts you need to remove circled.

Thanks.

You will see how the four sections of bolts are when you look at the dash.

The dash is all one piece. The 2008's may be a little different from the 06 and 07 since they extended that middle section where all the controls and head unit are.

so it is all one assembly then - how hard to remove from the vehicle?

this is what the (07) FSM says...



Remove the 16 screws and using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent, separate the trim bezel and remove.

Makes it sound like it is the front piece only. Is it difficult to get around the wheel to get it out?

What is it you're trying to do? Just install a head unit or something? If so, all you have to do is remove that one piece, 3 min. job. It's just the dash bezel, not the dash. If you're wanting to remove the entire dash, I haven't heard of anyone else doing that.

yes - i am replacing the head unit. OK, so it is just the front part then. seemed like it was going to be the entire dashboard assembly.

thank you.

anyone have their MyGIG replaced? if so, did you have to get it starscanned for it to work?
