First Gen Dash Removal

There is a very annoying "squeak" coming from the dash and it seems to be located in the middle to passenger side of the dash. It may be coming from the heating duct but I'm not sure. Two questions:

1. Has anyone taken their dash out (and if so, how the heck do you do that? I only see bolts on the underside of the dash.)

2. Has anyone experienced this same symptom before? If so, how did you fix it?

I've noticed that it doesn't happen in the summer; only when it is cold out.

I hate interior squeaks!!!

Mine rattles squeaks flops around in cold weather as well.
I've been into the center/radio area all the way into the center air ducts.
That part is extremely easy to get into.

Depending on the audio it could be a connector or harness. I installed my JVC and that is what happened to me I had one I forgot to wrap with foam and it was rattling on the mount housing.

To check on center console.

1) point your two center vents straight uo towards the windshield and remove the + screw from them. (1 each =2)

2) Pull your 3 HVAC control knobs off and there is a screw behing each of of them (3 total)

3) Gently pull the surround toward you and disconnect the harness's from the control knobs

Thats it you should be clear to inspect around your center console. The stereo is held in by 4 screws. One of the easier center consoles I have removed.

Good luck finding the noise.
