i know its not what you're doing here, but how come you couldn't get the pedal box out to fix it? its not an easy job, but its not that hard. only need to slide the dash forwards a inch to get to the bolts at the top of it.

will proly b worth more as a car thats all

i just wrote this in a PM for you, but i figure i might as well put it here for anyone else to have a look at.

reading through this it will seem a bit daunting, but if you take your time and be methodical about it, you'll be fine.


i havent actually done it myself (i will be taking some photos and doing it during this week though ;) ) but essentially there is about 4 or 5 bolts along the top and a couple more at the bottom of the pedal box.

the bottom ones are easy to get to, just slide your seat back and crawl under. There will be 2 brake booster nuts (EF/EL i'm guessing you have) and another couple of nuts in there as well, these are the actual pedal box ones.

to get to the top ones, you need to unbolt the entire dash ( i have done this bit before :lol: ) there will be a bolt under each kickpanel, 5 or 6 across the top of the dash under the cowl panel. that cowl panel comes out with two torx bits.

take out the radio surround and there will be two more screws which tap into the floor. i think you will also have to take the centre console out.

take the rubber piece out from under the cluster and there will be two bolts running from the dash frame through the pedal box, undo the nuts from these.

now the dash itself should be free from the firewall. This'll give you a bit of space to pull it forwards without needing to unplug all the electronics.

you will see the top pedal box bolts once your here. undo them, and then try and maneuver the pedal box out the bottom.

hi

to get the dash out you need to remove the centre consol,take the kick panels off , at the bottom of the dash near the kick panels there is a 10mm bolt on each side,there is also 2 10mm bolts under the dash where the console meets the dash, take the plastic cowling just below the windscreen off (its the cover with the speaker vents)
now there is 5 or 6 screws under the top cowling.
undo the 2 nuts holding the column up.
and you should be able to lift the dash up enough for the studs for the column to clear the column mount of the pedal box and pull it back towards you..then you should be able to get your arm behind to get to the top 3 nuts on the pedal box...

or you can undo all the loom plugs ect and completely remove the dash from the car..
its probably easier to just pull the dash back enough to get to the 3 nuts..

it would be a shame to wreck that car its looks to good to wreck...
