hi , got a bit of tiding up to do as you can see , is it possible to take dashboard top off without removing windscreen ?

Also fresh air hose that goes front grill should it have a foam liner ? mine looks like it had but think there's been a mouse in there !

Lastly   the o/s hose is missing , looks like it goes out to inner wheel arch is this right ?

3 nuts holding the top dash rail,one in the middle and one either end. Once undone it will need a wiggle and maybe a whack to remove!

And a huge risk of the dash not lining up as it should to bolt back on.

There should be 2 fresh air intake pipes, the drivers side should have a box under the wing to connect the 3 way pipes. Then the passenger side is straight to the cabin.


Your car will rot here so be prepared to wash the areas regularly.

Personally we remove the fresh air intake and weld the holes closed but then need to run the car with a window open in winter..

If you do decide to weld them up use a good non silicone sealant to ensure the welding is protected as well as possible.
