The pin goes from the inside toward the outside as seen in picture below. There is a large metal tab that bends over to hold it in place. To remove you have to pry the tab out with a large screwdriver or wedge, and when installing the tab be sure to bend the tab back over the pin head. Here is the illustration:

Here is  a picture with trunk hinge pin pointed out:

Wich large tab do I have to pry open to put pin back? And thnk you sooo much

The tab and pin are pointed to by yellow arrow. Install the hinges and pin with the trunk and torsion bars off.  See orange arrow pointing to tab that holds trunk hinge pin in place:

I am trying to put the line back in and cant seem to line up the holes, do I need to have trunk on ,because I took trunk off to manage bracket better but cant seem to slide pin in?

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!
