Default fixed the dash without removing all of it...

well it wasnt broken.
the two left bolts behind the cluster just didnt had any nuts on them.
i dont know how or why but they just wasnt there...
so i just added two nuts and two discs with rubber on one side for flexibility against the plastic clips on the defrost vent.
by just removing the cluster and the upper part of the dash...
first time about 1hr.

Could you be a little more specific where those bolts are? Did you have to take the cluster out? I want to take a look at them first before I dismantle the entire dash.

Default sorry for the delayed re.

heyo(4 i think maybe 5 look at the pics) but with a flashlight and a little mirror it is possible. i didnt fixed them all, in my case i didnt had to.
only the one behind the cluster and yes i had to take it out.
the first left one is easy to reach.
good luck.

thx for the info. I almost have given up but I will retry it this weekend. I also think that I only have problem with left ones because that's where the noise is coming from.
