Anyone remember how many bolts and where hold the EF/L dash in?
I know that there is 5 along the top, 1 on either bottom corner, 2 bottom of the centre console and 2 below the steering shaft - so that's 11, anyone recall any more?

Lift and pull.
Its on hooks.
Don't forget ll the wiring that needs to be unplugged *main loom unbolts*
otherwise you'll be calling out for someone whilst holding it.

I thought you had to undo half a dozen or so nuts in the engine bay, along the firewall?

or did I undo them for no reason?

Only need to undo them if your doing the climate control conversion etc. - which I am, so I will eventually undo them, but I'll wait till the engine is out.

it can be done without removing the heater box, its fiddly but saves heaps of time cause u don't have to drain the coolant or ac gas. but if ur pulling the engine out anyway it doesn't matter :lol:
