I am looking to have the dash pad refurbished.
I have reviewed the FSM regarding removal and it indicates to remove some screws and it should come out.
My question to anyone who has done this before is is it really that easy? Are there any tips or suggestions?

I did this on My B body in January and it was much more involved than expected.

It is basically just a few screws, above the and to the side of the cluster, up through the holes in the glove box and then the 4 by the windshield and it slides right out. Not bad at all. Don't remember right now but I think the a-pillar trim needs to come off as well.

I'm pretty sure A pillar trim stays on. It's been a little while but I believe it's the dash pad and speaker cover that has to come off to remove the screw holding A pillar in.

As Aspen500 wrote it's pretty simple really.

I think you are correct on the a-pillar screw, digging way back in the memory banks.
