REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4


CAUTION
On models equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) or "air bag,'' work must NOT be started until at least 90 seconds have passed from the time that both the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK position and the negative cable is disconnected from the battery.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.  
  3. On 1984-1986 sedans and all wagons, remove the radio console box. On all other models, remove the center trim panel. These trim panels are usually secured by screws and/or clips. Be sure you have removed all of the attaching screws before prying the panel from the dash. Do not use excessive force on the panel as this will only lead to damage.
