Default Removing the digital clock housing out of the dash.

the title explains it all, im planning on dropping in a gauge pod where the digital clock housing is up on the dash. Just wondering if theres a proper way into removing it w/o damaging it.

Just pull straight up on it. It has clips that hold it in, give her a dug and it will come right out.

The back two clips (windsheild side) are easy to pop out, but the front two are a pain. I took of the AC vent panel and went underneath to help with the front clips. It is kind of a PITA but you'll get it.

definately take the top vents out, you'll be able to see the clips as you try to take it off. cause if you break one of them, it's a pain to put back together. also don't snap in your pod unless it's already painted or whatever you want to finish it with. even harder than the stock one to pull out.

When I pulled the pod I was afraid to pull too hard because I thought that I would break something. But, to get it out you do have to give it a strong yank and then the clips release. Make sure that you don't drag the clips accross the dash as you are taking it out . I now have some scratches in the top of the dash because I wasn't careful enough. As tdxflex said some of the aftermarket replacement pods such as Defi have rather big stiff plastic retaining clips (not flexible ones like the stock one). On my Defi, I ground off and rounded the "hook" part of the retainers a little because it looked like it would never come out once I put it in. Mine is snug and secure but pulls out easily with a firm yank.

Im planning on reusing the D.C. housing, since all im doing is drilling a few holes in it to fit up a boost gauge, I figured this would be the easiest place to mount it since I can splice into the wires for the clock, and route the vacuum tube easaly to the boost gauge.

Thanks Guys!

Do what Dale (iceNine) said. I did the same thing (except for the part of jacking up my dash).
