Hey everyone how's it going?  Guess no one could answer my 3d upholstery question,  but I've got another one...
I want to cover certain panels in the Tek with material (not decided on what to do it in yet)... How do you get the panel off that has the HUD and the DIC controls on it?? (the one that's painted Orange on the MRBP monster Aztek)
It's the one with the three vent holes...

Do I have to take off the radio surround first? ( i know how to get that one off)  

Please help cause I don't want to end up breaking something and therefore being forced to shout horrible things at it   :cuss:

Thankx

The DIC / HUD controls are located on that slightly protruded plastic on the front of the dash.  There is a clip near the top of that piece that holds it into place.  Just use a "flat bladed tool" to press the clip down, and you can remove the piece.  You can then remove the electrical connections.

No need to remove the radio, or other parts of the dash.

Maybe I read the original post wrong? are you trying to remove the HUD/DIC control or are you trying to remove the entire dash trim? The entire piece that would maybe be painted or covered with a dash kit?

I'm trying to remove the whole dash piece... Yes, the one that kits are available for...  It's the one big piece that's the textured black, and has the holes for 3 of the 4 AC vents

Okay andrew misunderstood... It should just pop out but be very careful because the plastic can break very easily. Try removing the stereo enclosure first so you see underneath the trim.

Thanks 03,

I stopped reading at "HUD controls" ....  :huh:

I suppose "the one with the three vent holes" should have been a clue!

 :wacko:
