    Question Dashboard Removal

    Where can I find a guide/instructions on removing the dashboard on a 1986 Fleetwood Brougham? I have a blown speaker and the mounting screws for the speaker are under the dash. TIA.

    You can find it in the OEM service manuals but as I recall, you just need to remove the top pad, don't you?
    If so, the screws are under the front lip of the dash pad, a couple are inside the glove box area etc. once you have all the screws out, just slide the pad forward and lift it off.
    If it's a one-piece dash, you can get them from underneath with 1/4" extensions and swivels.
    You can also just say the hell with it and just mount pezio's on the a-pillars or in the door panels to take their place.

    Halfway there - Dashboard

    Thank you for the reply. I found the screws in the glove box. The air vents in the center console block any access to the dashboard from underneath. There is still an elusive screw somewhere.

    I saw an owner's manual on ebay, but wanted to know if it would have information about the dash. You seem to have answered that question. Thanks again!

    Did you get the ones inside the top A/C vents?
    You have to remove the actual vent piece by prying the tabs on the ends while rotating the vent slightly up or down.

    Too late! It looks as though I might already be heavily medicated!
