How do you remove that dashboard pocket thing ? You know, the small compartment on the passenger side to put stuff in. On mine, the front of it is sideways. What sence is that, everything falls out. I want to replace it with the style that's in my Formula.

Or grab it and pull really hard. It will break the plastic clips attached and you'll have to glue it back on.

The panel is held on with stamped metal speed nuts, not plastic.
The plastic posts may break, or you may damage the dash.

But hey, there is the right way to do things, and then there are other ways......

Agreed. I prefer the right way as it does less damage.

Pull the dash just to remove that "thing" ? ( what actually is it called anyway? ) Looks like I'll be doing it "the other way" I'm not pullin the dash. If there's plastic fasteners in there, I hope they break. Replaceing this will be easy once I get it off.
Back in the day they were called map holders if im correct.

Anyway, thanks for the info on something silly if you ask me

Hey, you asked, I answered.

It's your silly question, not mine.

Pulling the dash really isn't very difficult or time consuming.

I would not risk pulling it off. Your dash is old and chances are you will crack it.

Unscrew the nuts from behind the dash. Gently. One nut is a bit hard to reach. If you have big arms, it helps to loosen the dash a bit. You have to put the nuts back on, anyway. Yanking on a fragile dash is probably not a good idea.

The dash removal can be done in about an hour, if you have an aux pod; less without. Probably less if you don't completely remove everything. It takes about half of that time to unscrew the nuts, without removing the dash; less if you have skinny arms and don't have to loosen the dash.

If you damage the dash, you'll either have to live with it or go through the time and exlense if replacing it. Decisions, decisions...
