Default Dash, Jack Roush

I have the opportunity to get my car signed by Jack Roush, And they need the panel that covers the passenger air bag. Does anyone know how to remove and replace this cover at all. Thanks

How soon do you need the panel? It might make more sense to buy a new panel and send that in for the signature, then swap the panels at a later date. I'm not sure if many dealers would stock this item, but they can probably get them within a day or two.

I just checked my service manual. Below are the steps to remove the panel.

-Rod
---------------
Instrument Panel Finish Panel RH
Removal and Installation

NOTICE: When prying on a component, a non-marring tool must be used or damage to the component may occur.

NOTICE: The RH instrument panel finish panel must be removed in the following sequence, failure to may cause damage to the RH instrument panel finish panel.
  1. Remove the RH instrument panel finish panel in the following sequence.
    1. With a non-marring tool, pry the lower LH corner of the RH instrument panel finish panel toward the rear of the vehicle to release the retaining clip.
    2. Continue to release the next lower retaining clip, followed by the others prying toward the rear of the vehicle.
    3. Release the additional upper retaining clips, starting with a corner and continuing to release the next upper retaining clip, followed the others by prying toward the rear of the vehicle.
  2. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
    1. To install, make sure to align the trim panel retaining clips to the retaining clip holes in the instrument panel.

I would suggest following Rod's idea. It is not a smart idea to drive a vehicle without the airbag cover, and it may take a while to get the cover back.

SHOrod:
have you come across the excellant instructions
http://www.shoforum.com/showthread.p...light=lockpick
for removing the panels and installing the Lockpick? If you could take the trouble to post the panel removal techniques necessary to follow the lockpick instructions without panel damage then I will be forever in your debt. Alternately, please post the part number of the book you used to produce the above drawing and instructions.
Thanks in advance!

To remove panels, you need non-metal interior removal tools, especially the plastic knife looking blade. Everything is just clipped in or attached with screws (that are very visible).
It took me about an hour and 1/2 from start to finish to install Coastal Lock Pick in my Flex, being extremely careful. If I were doing these daily, I would guess it could be done in around 30 minutes.

Thanks EcoBrick!
I'm one of those guys that has a bad history with snap catches, but I guess if I'm careful I won't break anything.
