Anyone know whether there are fasteners under forward edge of dash pad. I am trying to remove it and thought that removing screws
at back bottem edge and puling back woudl take it out. Aren't the only fasteners holding the front a spring clip? Or am I missin some fasteners someplace. have removed glovebox also and can't see or feel anythin but spring clips at front. But it will not pull off... Suggestions? thanks, Mike H

There are spring clips along the front edge. If they have never been pulled,they will have a good bite on them.

You might want to consider getting an assembly manual. After having them, I don't like to take anything apart without them. They give you Superman's x-ray vision!

There are no hidden screws on the 68-69 Torino dash pad. If you have removed all of the visible screws, then the pad is ready to come out. Sometimes it sticks on the underside, and it's best to have the column removed for clearance.

Don't forget the two in the gauge pods. This may be what's holding you up.
