Re: HOW TO: Remove Front/Rear Dash and Install Deck, Remove Door Panels

so anyway...back to the original topic of the thread. what is a GM tool for taking the door handle off when removing the door panels? im trying to replace my front speakers, but i can't get the damn door handle off. it doesnt have a horseshoe clip, so i can't just pop it off! what do i do, short of bashing it in with a hammer?

I didn't have the GM tool either, I just jammed a screwdriver in there, and then held it while jamming another in the other way, and I just kinda Jimmy Rigged it out... It broke and went flying across the garage, lol...

Re: HOW TO: Remove Front/Rear Dash and Install Deck, Remove Door Panels

Even tho this thread seems to be dead, i need a bit of help. Heres my situation. I get all the screws out, all of them including the brass ones(big pain). Ever thing seems to be going well, the dash is coming out on the drivers side, and then it strait stops. I wiggle a bit and work it side to side to no avail. I take a flash light to see in there and see 2 little clamp/hook things. These are what seems to be my problem. The thing is that I can get them to unhook. I try and try and I cant even see which way they come out, or even if thats my real problem. So, long story short, I need help. Anyone out there know what I need to do? Thanks

Re: HOW TO: Remove Front/Rear Dash and Install Deck, Remove Door Panels

Well, i dont have acess to a camera right now, but im not even sure there clips. What ever they are, they are 2 black plastic looking things that have been insertet into a metal sheet that is tooth. The teeth prob keep the black plastic in there, but I dont think thats whats holding it on. I cant realy get a pic, but I can answer anything as I am looking at it right now. Any help you can give to get this dern thing off would be great.

Re: HOW TO: Remove Front/Rear Dash and Install Deck, Remove Door Panels

from the discription of where your getting stuck it sounds like you didnt get the 2 gold brass bolts that you can access from the glove box, you may need a socket with an extention to get to them. i had that problem the first time i tryed to take off the dash.

if you look in the top left corner of the bottom pic in that black area thats where the 2 gold bolts are.

Re: HOW TO: Remove Front/Rear Dash and Install Deck, Remove Door Panels

Is the glovebox a serviceable item? My 2001 came with a broken one. The plastic that holds the hinge mount completely broke away from the bottom of the glove box. I was thinking of going to a salvage yard and taking one out for mine, but from all the pics, it doesn't look like it will pop out with the removal of more clips and screws. Anyone taken one out before?
Thanks

You should be able to just swap in a new one. Mine broke and I got a new one off ebay but the outer "cover" was a different color. I just unscrewed it and screwed on my original one.

Thanks,
Unfortunately, my problem is not just the door, but the whole interior box. Mine looks like a jagged shelf. From the pics I have seen, it looks like I need the whole lower half of the dash. From under the steering wheel, under the radio console and then the whole glovebox section all looks like one piece.
