How to Remove the Dash From a 2007 Dodgeby John Johnston
Constant sun expose on the dash of your 2007 Dodge can cause the material that makes up the dash to expand out of place. This creates cracks and holes within the dash. If this occurs you should look to replace the dash from your Dodge in order to either repair or replace the damaged dash.
Open the hood of your 2007 Dodge. Remove the bolt clamp attached to the negative battery terminal using a wrench. Lift the negative cable away from the battery terminal.
Locate the mounting screws on the glove compartment, and remove them with a Phillips screwdriver. Lift the glove compartment away from the dashboard to access the rest of the lower dashboard.
Remove the rest of the screws from the lower dashboard. Carefully lift the lower dash away from the dashboard. Pull the face plate from the front of the dashboard to access the radio assembly. Remove the mounting screws from the radio. Remove the wiring from the radio, and pull the radio and bracket from the dash.
Remove the screws from the bezel around the instrument panel using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the bezel from around the panel. Remove the mounting screws from the panel. Disconnect the wiring from the panel, and remove the panel from the dash.
Remove the rest of the screws from the upper dashboard. Carefully remove each dash section one at a time to remove the complete dash.
