remove all the star keys at the top, and dash speakers , then the 3 10 mm bolt underneath one on each side an one behind the radio

unbolt the steering colum 2 15mm nuts and slid the gear shift indicator tab off the top of the colum, just push it towards the front of the car

pull the radio trim peice an take the 4 7 mm screws for the radio and pull it out

pull the 4 7 mm screws for the ac an push it back through the radio hole so u dont have to mess with any of those vacuum lines an the pull cord for the cold-heat lever

pull the face off the gauges an take out the screws holding the insturment cluster in , its always a pain in the dick to undo the speedo cable but theres a little tab on it u have to push an the speedo cable pulls out, usually have to go through like where your dash speaker sits becarefull with the cluster because the part the plug goes into is very thin n can get messed up easily then pull the plug towards you an slide it back through at a different angle

unscrew the headlight switch 7 mm screws then u have to pull the plugs for the headlights towards you then push them through a different direction, usually pain in the ass too

if it a cutlass theres a plug in between the two center a/c vents theres another plug there u have to the same thing as the headlight switch

now all your wires are bolted to the back of the dash which should eb pretty loose by now unscew your a/c vent tubes and your wire bundles from the back and it should pull out

im sure i missed a couple little things but thats the main parts

m first dash took me about 4 hours to pull out now its about 30-45 mins

just dont yank on anything too hard espically the speedo cable cause it will come apart in the wrong spot an isnt able to just go back in with out alot more work

to put it back in just do it backwards
