Help please!
 
m trying to take the radio/HVAC panel out to replace the computer with an analog clock. On another forum, a poster said to remove the heat and fan knobs, then remove the lower panel. Problem is, there is no lower panel, and the sliders are all in the same piece. In other words, the entire panel is one piece. How do I go about removing this correctly? It is a 1987 325ic.

Note; I found the two screws on the underside, and it will pull out about a half inch from the bottom, but the sliders seem to be catching...which is obvious as Im sure there are cables and/or some kind of linkage connected to them.

Thanks!

Looks like you gotta pull the knobs off the hvac.. their should be some screws behind the plate. Screws also behind hazard button, and behind the dummy button. That should help a little.

You got it.

Its also possible to get in to the four screws holding the OBC in from the glovebox if you drop the plastic panel.

I suspect you will run into issues with wiring the clock up though as the analouge clock wiring will not be there.

Two small black phillips screws up and under the console. One behind your speaker fade switch and one behind your hazard switch.
Good luck getting that console back on the way it was. Takes alot of concentration.

Yeah make sure when you put everything back, you're anal about it. Because I must have missed something somewhere, and the bottom of the panel is sticking out a bit. Don't have enough patience to do all of that again :rofl:
