G3: Climate Control Removal

Posted 01-28-2003 at 12:00 AM by Jonmon

Where we begin. As always be very careful when removing the climate controls. This is an expensive piece, so take care in removal/installation of it. There's only two screws holding it in, so it's easier than it appears

First, look under the dash on the passenger side. Pull this cable off of the metal post, and pull the cable casing out of the clip

Here it is removed

Remove the hazard and defroster buttons by firmly pulling AWAY from the controls. Be VERY careful when doing this

The following two phillips screws will need to be removed. Be carefull not to drop the screws when taking them out. A magnetic bit is recommended

After the two screws are removed, GENTLY pull out and away from the dash. DO NOT pull too far, yet

This green connector will need to be disconnected next

I found it much easier to remove from the bottom. I used a small flat-head screwdriver to push in the tab in the middle of the plug

Last connector to be disconnected

Here's the dash with the controls totally removed

When installing the controls back into the dash, be sure to CORRECTLY route the cable back down this channel. It may take a couple tries to get correct. Install everything else in the order it was removed

    When removing the hazard and defroster buttons, instead of using just my fingers, I had the best lucking using a very small flat head screw driver and gently prying away from the controls. Be careful when doing this. Hope this helps somebody out.

    I damaged the fiberglass support behind the climate control center on my 95 GSR and repaired it with sheet aluminum and JB weld epoxy.
    The attached pics show what the broken part looked like before and after the repair. I could not get my fingers behind the bracket to apply a support so I first glued the broken part back in place with epoxy, and then cut a piece of sheet aluminum to epoxy on the front face. If you make your own similar repair, be careful to make the width of the bracket the same as the fiberglass piece. You need about 3/16 of an inch between the bracket and the A/C duct on top, and bottom is where the hazard and defrost wires run thru so don't make it extend beyond those barriers. Also mine measured about 1/8 inch between the fiberglass support and the back of the climate mount bracket when installed, so you don't have much room for a thick piece of aluminum. I used an old license plate and it worked great. My fiberglass bracket had a bunch of resin all over it, so I cleaned it with lacquer thinner and sanded with 220 sandpaper to provide a better bonding surface.
