(Important note here: When you disconnect the tubing from the in car sensor, upon reinstallation make sure that everything is connected correctly. Otherwise your heat and A/C won’t work correctly)

Now, your  dash pad is removed and ready to be repaired or placed.


Note: Difference in Series 2 and 3 dash pads:
The only difference is in the placement of a bracket that holds the front of the dash secure. On the series 3, there are even punch marks were the old bracket would have been installed.
To switch them wouldn’t be very difficult.
