I've been needing to change my hinges on my driver's side but I was wondering if there was a nut that needed to be remove on the inside of the dash for the upper hinge. I know there is one for the lower but I haven't pulled things apart enough to see if there is on the upper.
There is one an inside one you have to get to on the upper.. I think the normal procedure is to at least pull away the dash to remove. I got by without doing that on mine, but it was a @#%[email protected]#$^! to do.. and the red marks on my arms directly after very well proved it.
I just replaced the pins in mine. It isn't that hard if you have a friend to help. I would have liked to replace the whole hinges but I didn't want to tear into the dash. With the pin replacement there is no need to unbolt that side of the hinge.
