INT : Complete Dash Removal RHD CB3 UKDM Non-Airbag

Its about time i did a DIY for this forum. Had this situation come up where i had to remove 2 dashes in a 2 day window, so thought for the 2nd one id take pics of it. There didnt seem to be any DIYs on this so i thought id fill the gap.

This is for any CB, but this one is a RHD CB3 UKDM NON AIRBAGGED ACCORD, but is exactly the same and a LDH version the process is just the same.

Although with only a phone, think the pictures are clear enough for someone who isnt sure on a dash swap to use them.

Tools required:

Cross head screw driver
Flat head screw driver
Thin nosed pliers
19mm socket
10mm socket
Extension
Ratchet
Magnet for those clumsy screw drops


This was done in 2 hours. Started at 3.30pm there a picture mid way somewhere of the clock. It may be done in less time, i however wasnt planning on scratching or breaking anything, and i was taking pictures.


Start with the steering wheel, pry off the H badge and spin the 19mm nut off.










Then unscrew the 2 screws for the indicator assembly. And unclip the clips. You will be left with just the steering column which does not need to come off.




Remove centre console, and gear stick knob.



















Remove the centre vents, drivers vent, buttons, and all screws for the dash trim.


























Remove the clock






Remove the dash cluster








Remove the heat controls, keep it dangling though, as it needs disconnecting from the heat matrix later.








Now remove the bolts for the dash, 2 each side, 1 behind the clock and 2 down at the centre by the gear stick, take the centre concole bracket out too, as that gets in the way.








Unclip the lower steering column cover and the big connector.






Unclip the wiring loom arrow head clips, and unclip the heater control cable.




If you have an alarm, unhook that.



Pull the dash out.











Done!








Have a cup of coffee and admire your work.

Excellent DIY Marcus. I can't beleive it's taken this long to get a dash removal DIY on here.

It seems like a daunting job for most, but I've done about 3 or 4 dash pulls/swaps, and it's really not that hard.

Cheers man, yeah i was surprised it hadnt been done, i had this worry that someone might snake a DIY in as i was doing the swap lol.

I was expecting major amounts of effort, but it wasnt too bad, no rusty bolts or stuff to work on, nice clean job. Interior work is always less hassle.

Lot of people do wire tucks, this might be useful for them too.

Sweet write up. But you can leave the harness hooked to the dash just unplug the main harnesses.

You have to remove the center console before the dash bezel

The past few drives I heard my dash squeaking and make a noise over a bump and it had me puzzled. Then yesterday I heard a screw fall from behind the clock area. (face palm!)

My worst fear is taking out my dash, but after reading this thread....., it seems a piece of cake. I should be able to fix my problem easily.

Thanks, great DIY

marcus, you can remove 2 bolts and 2 nuts that hold the column, and drop it without taking the steering wheel

you can leave the cluster in, you can also leave the wiring and disconnect the main plugs

great writeup though











i wonder if anyone noted, this car doesnt have A/C

Thanks, yep, true I knew there were 2 methods, wheel off or column off, I just went for wheel off

As for the dials, had to do a direct swap fron one car to another, so needed to keep the same dials for mileage reasons.

Yep my silver 91 accord that I resently sold was non AC, but my main blue 93 accord has AC

This will be way off topic...



Is it true that people over there in the UK hate Harry Potter?
