Hopefully i'm posting this in the correct spot.

TL;DR dash removal instructions, mainly passenger airbag. Have wiring diagrams. Just need the best method for taking this project on.

I'm pretty sure a cracked heater coil (now bypassed) causing coolant/steam to flow in behind my dashboard has caused a short somewhere along the lines. Speedometer is intermittent, same with tach. Door ajar alarms crackles ever now and again. One of my oil pressure sensors goes wonky in between 2/3k rpms. Figured i'd take out the dash entirely to do some nice clean wiring work and give the interior a nice scrubdown. I can find videos for everything else under the sun but no information about taking out the interior component housing. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

thanks.

Try not to dive too deep

It's a heater "Core" that you are referring to, ( for parts ordering purposes the component name helps). And the speedo/tach intermittent inop issue is actually quite a common one. Not sure what you need exactly along the lines of advice but grabbing a chiltons manual might be a good start. the instrument cluster R&R is a snap, the heater core isn't so bad either just be careful about accidental airbag deployment. Those things will REALLY hurt you if you're not careful.
