Probably a dumb question. But the entry in my stupid Chilton's manual for removal is even dumber.

On the subject, it says:

"Remove glove box bin. To install, follow steps in reverse order"

Yeah, no S Sherlock. But... how? Where are all the fasteners, and are there any funky tricks? I'd like to know so I don't, oh, break it.

When you open the glove box (Bin as Chilton calls it lol) then gently squeeze in one side at a time (There should be a plastic stopper on the bin on each side of it) you want to pop that out of its grove so the bin swings down all the way. Then look at the hinges, there should be one philips screw holding each hinge to the dash.

Then if you want to remove the liner from the dash (To get at any wiring) there should be a few screws or plastic clips holding that up.

Thank you.

Yes, this is to get at the wiring. Installing a cruise computer for a cruise system refit.
