I know in 93 they were philips.....if we're talking about the screws on the underside of the dash overhanging the instrument cluster.
Um, nooo... The screws in the molding overhanging the cluster are T-15 Torx screws, at least from the factory. If he'* got Phillips screws in there then who knows what'* been going on in there.
Actually now that I've re-read his post: He'* saying that it'* _under_ the dash behind the steering wheel. Those are usually 8mm hex-head screws or similar, so if he'* seeing a Torx-head screw there, then somebody has _really_ been playing mix-and-match with the hardware.
If it is a stripped Torx head, try tapping a slightly oversized Allen (hex) key into it and see if that can grip it. If you have metric and standard Allen keys, one of those should be a snug fit. Toss the screw as soon as you get it out!
