You would have to remove the windsheild to drill out the rivits holding that VIN plate in place. If you want to remove the VIN from your car it sounds a little fishy to me.. The dashpad just goes over and around that VIN plate. There is no need to remove it from your car, or the car you're taking it from.

If you replace your instrument cluster with used, the digital odometer setting will not transfer.(At least that'* what happened on my SSEi). The odometer setting is stored in the cluster, and does not transfer from vehicle to vehicle.

So, if you put in a IC from a salvage yard, you will need to attach an adjustment somewhere that will reflect the difference in the actual vs. displayed mileage. You may be able to get a dealer to reprogram the used IC...but I doubt it. They only seem interested in selling you their own remanufactured version.

The car was parked on the street next to the college. It was at night on the weekend, and most people didn't even look when an alarm went off because it was so common. The razor blades were under the dash.
LOL, college...... Sounds more like a war torn third world country story. hehe

So the vin is connected to the car. What a relief. Arent the vin #'* impossible to remove anyway?
those punks!! defacing a Bonnville!

the Vin in the window can be removed with a drill. but there are others on the car.. under the hood... theres like 9 or more vins besides the window one.. you can even have them eitched(spelling?) into your door windows

heres a list of places...not to smart to have on the internet.. crooks can now find them.

transmission
front & rear bumper
engine
hood
right & left door
sliding cargo door
right & left quarter panels and side assembly
pickup/cargo box
rear doors & hatchback/deck lid/tailgate.
ahh you missed one that is now becomeing really common and that is on the seat belt

A dealer will be able to change the milage/vin stored in the DIC on your car if i'm not mistaken.
