Anyone know how to remove the plastic lens cover over the radio and climate/heat/ac controls ‘64 DeVille? Im trying not to damage anything here. Thanks in advance
Pull the radio out and then the faceplate on the dash. Bolts hold the faceplate in on the back side.
To get the AC control head out, I cut the center support bar out of the dash. That gives me just enough wiggle room to get the control head out. One of the slider levers needs to be removed to get the plastic lens off.
The face plate is two pieces, isn’t it? The black piece and and the clear piece??
Can the radio be removed from below, through the steering column cover? Or does it have to be after removal of the dash pad from the top?
Per the shop manual, take the glove box insert out, lower dash panel and the AC duct diverter piece. The radio comes out through the bottom.
As noted they are attached from the back of the instrument panel cluster. The clear lens sits in a formed painted metal back plate with several screws from the back holding it up against the large chrome instrument cluster bezel. You can sell them lens and the back plate removed by Clicking Here. You will also see I have them if your lens is damaged or just wanted the back plated cleaned, sanded, painted and ready to install.
