So I'm trying to repair the leather on my dash. I've removed the A-pillar molding on each side, the air vent molding, and have the entire top dash panel ready to come out... Except there is 1 or 2 screws holding it in above the passenger airbag. Yep. The dash panels that needed to be removed are out, but I cannot figure out how to remove the airbag door/cover to remove the last screw or two.

I've disconnected the airbag after removing the radio, and the truck battery disconnected.

How do I remove the air bag cover to get to the screw(s) I seek!

Thanks all!

The whole airbag comes out, cover and all. For the 99, you access the two screws through the glove box opening. You need to remove the glove box. I know the dash is different for your year, but mayb e the design is similar.

I finally got around to removing the leather dash panel. I removed the glove box and unbolted the airbag enough to allow me to wiggle in a screw driver and remove the two nuts I'd been needing to get to.

Here she is gutted down.



I was able to use 5 min epoxy and get about 10 inches of the leather material glued back down to the plastic molding... Tomorrow I'll head to Home Depot and get about 20 1" clamps and epoxy the leather that's no longer adhered to the plastic molding and then clamp the leather down with folded cardboard and clamps and let her dry. Woohoo! Then, put it all back together, yay!
