Hey guys.
I know this is another thread but I'm most of the way through removing the dash but there still seems to be a few screws.
It just wont pull out.
Crash panel is taken out, all the lower stuff is out (glove box, kick panels, dash facia, centre console etc)

Wondering if anyone in perth would be able to spare an hour today after 5 or even tomorrow after 5.
Any help would be appreciated as im just completely stumped.

There are two bolts behind the kick panels (one each side) and there are another two just either side of the centre console area and the steering column nuts. The bolts under the crash pad and then it needs to come up a bit and out to remove the remaining conectors.

Thanks everyone
2 screws i couldnt find your on the side of the middle part of the dash.

Happened i found the part in the boook after i had removed everythiung

Pedal box is shagged. Swear a couple more pushes of the clutch and the thing woulda snapped.

Putting it back together should be great.
The guide clip for the dash n steering wheel flew out as well ... shouldnt need it

Haha yeah what a crap job took me and a mate 2 hours to get the dash out, the new pedal box in, and the dash back in. Without knowing wtf to do, and missing some tools. Was a darn good experience, and tomorrow i'll be driving a T5 falcon, just gotta get the clutch cable all done and tailshaft back in and a custom mount.
