Removing dash glass Empty
PostSubject: Removing dash glass   Removing dash glass EmptyWed Jan 23, 2013 6:52 pm

Hi guys,

Is there a EASY WAY to remove the glass or plastic that covers the speed-o-meter and gauges without having to remove the entire dash ????????

I need to get to the metal behind it it, and polish it, as it is turning a yellow color. I don't have the experience to remove the whole dash, and I don't know a trust worthy mechanic that would want to do it.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Larry

Unfortunately, you need to remove the cluster to get to the plastic lens, I really don't see any way around it.

I kinda thought that would be the only way. But I knew you'all would know for sure.

Thanks John,

Hey Larry........mine had 2 screws and 2 nuts holding the cluster to the dash. when you unplug everything the cluster comes right out. I found it easier to remove the steering wheel also. the gauges and gauges plate is screwed into the surround and the inner cluster mould surround holds the glass to the gauge plate with little tabbs. you have to pry to remove the mould surrouns and glass. be carefull here cause the small tabbs can break.

Larry It is not a bad or hard job taking the gauge panel out, I have done mine a few times just have to do the old upside down trick under the dash, I am 70 years old so I know you are more bendable then I am Hee! Hee!

Thanks Guys,

I will give it a try when I have a couple days off work in a row. I think I'll try and replace all the gauge lights when I do it also, as mine seem to be a little dim, even though the they are on high. BUT that yellowing of the metal plate is driving me crazy, it makes the whole dash look bad, when the rest of the inside is nice and clean.

Larry,
I've never seen the aluminum faceplates yellow, is it possible that someone replaced the plastic lens at one time? Some plastics will yellow badly if exposed to sun.

John,

It very well could be the plastic lens....... I had the windows tinted limo black last year, but before that the sunlight could have yellowed it. I'll find out as soon as I can get the chance to take it out. She is being repainted right now and wont be back for 2 weeks Crying or Very sad

I will post what it is as soon as I find out.

Thanks,

Larry
