Hi mate...

Start by taking the centre Console out... and remove front scuff panels under doors and kick panels inside... Also remove the plastic section on the top of the dash (this is for ED's I'm guessing EF's too) held in with two tiny screws in the tweeter grills (can see through windscreen)

Undo big earth wire up the top of the dash (under this plastic thing ^^^) Loosen the 5 bolts across the top...

Either undo from the pedal box (bolts hidden under bottom shroud), or completely remove the steering column, I often find it easiest with it gone altogether and its not that much harder to piss it off... Be careful if you leave it hang that it doesn't over load and ruin the bottom bearing, big problem in EA-ED...

Two bolts in behind the kick panels need to be removed...

Two bolts hold it back against the firewall which would normally be hidden by the centre console...

Unplug all the plugs behind each kick panel and behind the glove box... Disconnect vac plug and heater door cable...

with a spare set of hands remove all the top bolts and roll onto you lap and slide out the door... :D

This is how my ED ones comes out, not much difference between them so guessing bolts are in the same place... Maybe some of the plugs are in different spots as wiring is run differently...

I think thats about it... :?

Cheers,
Tim
