    How do you remove the Transmision Inspection panel(The one in the cab on the hump), I have unbolted it but it appears to be glued down. I have tried to use a screw driver to pry it up but it just bends.

    Mine just came loose when I unbolted it. Someone probably put some sealer around it. Can you get a knife blade between it and the cab floor?

    Different years are assembled differently. I know on my 85 it was basically sealed at the factory. Mine doesn't even have bolts. But, a friend that has a 74 that it just unbolts and pops right out.

    Anybody know how or why some do and some don't have the removable tranny humps. I've seen some with and some without. Was it a GMC vs. Chevy thing, or a cutoff at a certain year etc? Anyone.......anyone..........Bueller? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    On my 82 the hump was bolted and sealed in place, i had to use a razor knife to cut the seal and screwdriver to pry it up
