It does make sense to get it done every couple of years considering the amount of dust I saw bwhind my dashboard in just the one year since it was last disassembled.

About 3-3.5 man hours.

Final pics with dust condition & reassembly will be posted a little later.

It would have been deucedly inconvenient and I may not have been amused at all.

Only after reading this thread have I realised what an inconvenience I have caused you ishan.
What amazes me is that we spoke the next day and you casually said,no worries man, got it out. Now I realise what you had to go through to get the phone out.
Though it was inadvertant (sp?) I'm sorry for the inconvenience and I promise to try and never do it again.

On the issue of dust, though the pictures are hazy can you guys make out how it is there on every surface of the dashboard. This when the whole car was taken apart & put together after thorough cleaning in March '06. To put it mildly this is only 1 years accumulation of dust under our conditions.









Cleaning it a bit






The parts taken off




The Tools


The Fusebox underneath the dash


Applying some Feviquik to fix the flapping insulation back in place




And voila the dash is back again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess all's well that end well. Helped you clear the dust inside & now you are guaranteed fresh clean air every time you switch on your AC.
