    Driver's side: remove the air vent, deep-well socket, 4-6" extension, wear knuckle protection.

    Passenger side: remove the glove box, as drill as above.

    Expect to bleed. And swear.

    Like that and .....
    There are little plastic plugs under the dash, both sides,that need to be removed (if not gone already) that access the bolts.

    Not sure why they ever did it like that /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
