#99 of 126 2005 Dashboard cover removal?

I recently removed the cover and whole dash on my 98' Expy. Although they are different models, im sure they are somewhat similar in removal/installation. It is a pain in the "you know what"! I replaced my heater core, which requires pulling the whole dash. First, you have to start with the center console, then the foot trim on both driver and pass doors. You have to drop the steering column (but be very careful not to ruin/break the transmission shifter cord. After getting further into it, it is alot of work. Alot more then what is outlined in a manual. If you decide to go further into this, let me know. GOOD LUCK

#103 of 126 not worth it
May 27, 2007 (3:53 pm)
i have the same vehicle that we bought used from a dealer. my wife and i discovered that it had a chip on the module that holds the chip when that module went out and had to be replaced. the dealer told us that the installation of the superchip voided the warranty of the powertrain module, which is something like 80,000 miles. even though i fought it telling them that aftermarket parts don't void warranties, they stood their ground. i contacted the dealer i bought it from and had them pay half of the $600 for a new powertrain module since they failed to detect the chip and disclose it to us.
now, did the chip cause the failure of the module? probably not but i can definitely tell you that there is zero difference in the vehicle now that the chip is not there. save your money and spend it elsewhere.
after taking out the chip i put it on ebay and made $80 about as fast i had ever made $80 before. so, there's obviously a market for it....
#105 of 126 Removing interior panel by the third seat
Apr 14, 2007 (3:09 pm)
I've got a problem that a lot of owners have with an actuator failure in the rear A/C. I know which one it is because I popped the top tray off and looked. However, I can't figure out how to remove the trim panel that covers it. I don't want to break the thing monkeying around.
Does anyone know how to remove this interior panel? It's right by the third seat on the passenger side.

This must be some sort of super-secret information because I've been looking and can't seem to find it online anywhere And no one seemed to post anything here. I'm trying to get at the sub-woofer in 98 expedition. Can someone outline how to go about this? Or point me to some instructions online?
