    Great find. I could not imagine letting most dealerships take the dash apart. I can hear the service manager now "well things never go back together like they were from the factory. "

    The irony of your comment...they took mine out and it’s out of alignment. Haven’t had the opportunity to take it back and have it corrected.

    most dealerships are just screwing thier mechanics anyway paying by the job now so they are all in a rush trying to get paid what they should be getting paid. and us the end consumer get the shit end of the stick when we get handed comments like that.

    Well I received the part. I can now see that the drivers side of the part has a tab that sits behind the lower dash panel where the hood release is, so I will have to pull that and another panel by the door off to remove the console top. I was hoping to be able to just remove the part I have to replace but that won't be the case. I just wanted to disturb as little as possible because I hate squeaks and rattles which I'm hoping removing all this stuff won't create. I'll find that out tomorrow!

    Exactly, and why they are struggling to keep mechanics and hire new ones.

    Does anyone know what the procedure is to unplug these two F****ing things? I am at a standstill because I have broken connectors in the past and these are baffling me. Thanks.

    I think the orange pieces are some kind of safety locks that need to come off first then the plug can be untabbed and pulled apart???? :confused:

    I'm thinking that too but nothing wants to move and it's delicate little plastic crap that I can see snapping right off. Everyone of these things are different and I'm sure it takes 5 seconds if you know where to pull/push.

    You try poking around with it with a pick tool?

    The frustrating thing is in all the videos you see nobody ever goes into how to separate these things. They just gloss over it by saying just unplug the connectors. I guess I am dense, but I don't feel like breaking anything here. I will have to wait until I can get a hold of my friend who will probably unplug it in a few seconds.
