Question Dash removal

I will be doing some repair work to my bulkhead vent handles and I need to remove the grey(ish) vent cover to do so. Looks like it is fastened with plastic button snaps.
Any tricks for removing this?

Cheers...

You just pop most of them out with the "Y" tool...but I find that more than half will need to be replaced.

Mike - It is connected with plastic push-in trim pins that will likely need to be replaced when you re-install. I found suitable ones at AutoZone. The more of the upper dash you remove, the easier it will be to get that grey plastic cover out. I found that I had bend it considerably to get it to clear the vent handles - I thought it was going to break, but it was surprisingly resilient. Getting it back in was no easier - you just have to patiently work it into place.

Actually just did this with the old mans 90. The pins arent that expensive, so just order them up from RN. Remove the side piece then unscrew the top two screws on the binnicle, one on each side. Then there are two screws along the underside edge of the top dash pad that hold the lip of the grey piece in place. Also unscrew the all the screws along the top of the top dash pad, should be 3 big screws and four screws that hold the cover for the vent pieces. Mine were very brittle (the pins) so I just snapped the heads off.

Then its just a matter of carefully manhandling the grey piece out. Should be about it.
