I used gregoryes workshop manual to help me because it was my first time. It's not too difficult but you will need a whole weekend to do it.

My dash was cracked so I also changed it to an ed one. This was more difficult because all the wiring had to be transfered.

You will need to remove the console, lower the steering column,disconnect all the wiring that is under the dash on the drivers side etc etc.

If you can fix it after removing the dash then good, but I had one of the flaps broken on the heater box so this had to be removed also. I wouldn't advise removing the heater box unless you had to because it involves disconnecting the ac
( release gas) and water hoses then undoing the nuts behind the engine ( not easy).

You will need 2 people to remove the dash and make sure that all the bolts are removed before you break something. I think there are 5 bolts on top, 2 on the side and 2 under the radio recess- a lot of people miss these ones.

While I had the dash out I checked and reinforced all the vacuum hoses and replaced all the foam items with new foam.
