    confused Dash Carcass Question...

    Ok, seeing as I'm now keeping my Pre-facelift Full Canbus car for the forseeable future, I've got a few little thiings I'm thinking of doing with it just to keep my interest ticking along...

    Todays plan of electric rear windows failed due to me not checking the body harness had the right wiring in it first, so my next thoughts are to something a little more major...

    Can the dash carcass itself (pictured below...) be swapped from a facelift model to the pre-facelift...?



    How major of a job would it be to swap them over...?

    I have reasons for thinking about doing it, and i can imagine the stuff that would have to come out, but does anyone know if it's simply a lot of screws and plugs...?

    Cheers in advance....

    Mark 2.2 said it was quite easy while he was doing his Facelift rebuild. Don't see any problem in swapping them over.

    Nah, they're a different shape. The facelift ones have a sticky-out bit that ends on the left of the centre vents, and the dash trim is as such a differnt shape. Having read the Hyanes manual, although it involves taking a lot of stuff out, it doesn't actually seem to be that hard - ie no special tools or anything...

    As long as the passenger airbag is the same it's something I might look at in the future as the dash trims are much nicer...

    It is a bit excessive to do it all just so you can fit the facelift dash trims.......
