dash replace ment

Recommended Posts

What kind of guidance are you looking for? Removing the dash is covered in the first part of this articlehttp://articles.mopar1973man.com/2nd-generation-24v-dodge-cummins/27-hvac-heating-ventalation-and-air-conditioning/57-air-conditioning-evaporator-core-heater-core-replacement. You don have o drain anything, you just need to get the dash loose and away from the windshield on the passenger side. I replaced mine a year ago and did this little write up on the dash and hvac box rebuild.http://forum.mopar1973man.com/threads/6792-new-dash-and-hvac-box-rebuild. Hope this will help.

This might tax my 60 year old brain but as I remember you take the glove box door out and it uncovers the bolts holding the air bag at the bottom and I believe it fits into slots or snaps in at the top. As for the duct work it moves forward with when you pull the dash back and it is just a matter of replacing the screws. I had the advantage of the hvac box being removed and it gave me a lot of extra room. I am assuming your heater and ac are working fine, if not this would be a good time to consider rebuilding the box.

Another item that would help you is a copy of the FSM. It is available in the down load section here. It will help with other things you might encounter. It definitely helped me with this and other issues I have dealt with.
