Disconnect the battery terminal.
Make sure the front wheels are facing straight ahead.
Remove the steering pad.
Remove the steering wheel.
Remove the clip and seven claws holding down the meter hood assembly.
Using a molding remover, disengage the 4 claws, then remove the instrument panel register assembly.
For a manual transmission, remove the shift level knob by unscrewing counterclockwise.
Using a screwdriver, disengage the 6 claws on the upper console panel.
Remove the heater control knob.
