Need help with under dash panel (driver's side)

Post by topher800 »

I am trying to get the under dash / under steering wheel panel installed. I can't figure out what the lower screw above the gas peddle goes into. There is a plastic box with a forward facing hole in it, but I can't get the screw to reach. The diagram below perhaps shows a bracket I am missing (#4)?

Also I ordered these screws (p#51431874616), but they seem too large for all the holes at the top side where it screws into dash. Does anyone have the part number for the smaller screw?

Yes, you need the #4 bracket, and then it's still a pain in the ass to get the screw in there. Post a wtb ad here, or drive to the Aurora pullandpay and see if there is one in the 533 there.
