Hi guys, I am starting my manual conversion on my new falcon, I have done one before on my old car. This time I just cant get the dash out, it will come about an inch away and that is it.
I have removed the 6 nuts or so that sit under the top pannel on the dash, the steering column is dropped, the bolts have been removed from the brake booster, the brake pedal disconnected and the bolt either side of the dash at the bottom has been taken out. I have also removed the cluster, climate control pad, trip comp and all that jazz.

What else is left I really am stuck and cant think of anything, I have tried searching for a docco to find exactly what has to be removed but I really cant find one.


Any chance of any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

EXACTLY... my ea that was my donor car for a manual conversion had those 3 top bolts and had to unbolt the dash.

Also my ef which I swapped pedal boxes over for the conversion, also has those three top bolts therefore having to unbolt the dash.

Any e-series Pedal box that doesn't would have had to have been f**k with.

the vent can be undone at the the top and a socket with an extension bar can be used. but with ef onwards shouldnt have the top bolts.
