1995 Range Rover SWB

I am restoring a 1995 Range Rover Classic SWB. I bought it a couple months ago and have been working through many issues. One issue that I need help with is the front windshield. I have a large crack down the passenger side and I want to have it replaced. Does anyone have any idea where I can find one?

yep, RN for sure. just a suggestion - stay with the heated screen as the defrost system really depends upon it especially when raining / high humidity and warm.

and nice Rangie.

Before I take apart the dash I would really like some info on how it all comes apart. Previous owner unplugged a lot of the dash switches and I can see the wiring in there but I cant get to them. Anyone have a link to a good tutorial??

Update on the restore... Abs fixed with new sensor, Seat control bypass complete, New front windshield, OME Suspension, 265/75's, New AC condensor Fans, and new steering damper.

Regarding dash disassembly, what do you want to know?

I need to know how to remove everything in the center below the radio. All of the switches to the left of the A/C controls are unplugged and I need to get back there to fish all the wires out and plug them back in.

As for the windscreen. It took over a week but, Safelite was able to locate one. It is even heated. I couldn't be happier with the work they did and they really went the extra mile to make it happen. I recycled the trim pieces which took a lot of effort. They are not easy to remove. My only real complaint, which I take full responsibility for, was I broke a couple plastic tabs off the interior trim piece that runs across the top of the glass.

Easy, the EAS switch panel just pops out. As do the other six switches. The mounting plate for those six can also just pop out, easier with the switches out. The ashtray has a metal tab on top, push down and pull the ashtray straight out. With the ashtray and EAS switch panel out, there are screws holding the cupholder (drinks tray) in, either two or three on either side depending on if yours was built before or after lunch.
The three round HVAC knobs and the fan knob all pull right off. Two screws hold the faceplate on the HVAC control but to really remove it, you'll need to pull the center dash facia. I can outline this if you want as well as illustrate.

Get two thin putty knives and put them above and below the switches. They will pop free. Ditto if I recall correctly the clock.

Credit cards are much safer

Whatever you do, don't break the center dash facia! They were unique to the soft dash RRC and only used the one year, so finding a replacement is near impossible.

Just curious, have you got a factory stereo or aftermarket?

While we are talking about SWB, 1995. Where can I find a binnacle bezel? That's pretty tough to find as well?

Are you still running the 265x75's? How bad is the rubbing and/or lock issues? TIA
