View Full Version : Help in getting off my gauge bezel and dash in an s13

i'm trying to get off my gauge bezel and dash, and can't get it.. i got the glove box and the metal plate off, the two small panels that are in the corners of the front, the center console, i have all of the buttons unplugged and i have the steering column case off. i can't get off the gauge bezel, and thats my main problem. the steering column ajuster gets in my way when i go to take the bezel off, keeping me from doing so. can someone please tell me what i'm doing wrong, or what else i need to do?

I dropped the steering column by taking off two bolts, and walla!
I had the same problem for a while until I figured out I had to lower the whole column itself.
Thats just what I did, there may be an easier way...

hmm, where where the bolts? you just dropped the steering column down and it made clearance? let me go try that, i'll be right back with results

the bolts are under the dash. you will prolly need to remove the plastic under the gauges/steering cloumn/ and such.

don't forget the bolts on top of the dash.. remove the long vent (2 pieces) on top and there are three bolts. (if you want to remove the whole dash)
