removal center console
#1
I'm trying to remove my center console in my 1972 Mach 1. I have everything loose, including center gauge panel.
I've removed dash cover. It is hanging up on the temp control panel, I can't get it to lift high enough to clear.
The clock is still installed, does it have to be removed first? If so how do I remove it.
Thx for any help.

Its been a long while since I did the dashboard, so from memory, you need open the ashtray, remove the astray, loose the 2 screws, you can then lift the "clock cover", and lift it towards you a bit then rotate it around the lever. It gives you access to the screws of the console bellow that are on a bracket of the dashboard structure. Hope my memory is of any use Wink

edit:
found a pict that might help you more as you can see the screw holes.

Set the brake and/or chock the wheels, put the transmission in '1' (if auto, '2' or '4' if standard).

You should be able to lift the whole thing up while moving it rearward, and sneak it by the shifter with it in the most rearward position.

I take mine in and out quite frequently, as I'm still working on my electrics.

In addition to Eirc's post. If you have not done so already disconnect the clock wire harness. The plug is under/around the heater controls behind the console and under the dash. Something I often forget to do first..

All I had to do when I removed mine was remove the screws and disconnect the clock wiring.
