How to Remove the Dashboard on a Toyota

Updated July 20, 2017

Removing the dash from one Toyota model will be the same process for every Toyota model. Screws secure the dash to the frame and firewall. The placement of the screws will vary for almost every model, and the number of wires that power the components on the dash will also vary. You will only need a few basic tools to remove the dash, and it should take about 15 minutes to do.

Connect a Phillips head screw bit to a power drill and tighten the power drill's tip. Make sure that the power drill's battery is fully changed before proceeding.

Remove the screws securing the dash to the firewall and frame with the power drill and bit. Once all of the screws have been removed, pull the dash away from the frame and the firewall.

Locate the connectors that secure the wires to the components on the rear of the dash. Pull or unscrew all of the wires from the components. Pull the dash out of the Toyota.
