Default Taking dash apart...READY TO KILL!

Down to the last piece I can't figure out to take off without some force. I'm removing the upper plastic piece that goes around the gauges, cigarette lighter, and sentinal twilight controls. Well I can't understand how to remove the twilight *****. The round one on the end and the ring for controling how long the lights stay on. Can I just pop these out by yanking on them?

No! You have to take a little poker and depress the tab on the back of the ****. You should see an area to put your poker in there.

Allmachtige, I think someone is trying to tell you that step 5 is this:

"Poke your crack with a stick".

Am I going to get in trouble for saying this?

Some homosexual references going around here....

LOL

Anyway, I got the top dash out, but what is the sensor for by the cig lighter? Step 6 says, "HVAC aspirator tube has temperature sensor in front"...that means nothing to me.

Were you able to get it off by sticking a poker in there?
