Total Newbie Question - glove box removal

Maybe Im just tired or maybe just Stoopid [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Anyway, I am trying to get to my computer to install my MPI kit and I can't see how this thing comes out. If anyone can help out it'd be great. Pics would be super too.

4 bolts from behind the dash. look for them, they hold the Oh S%*t bar to the dash.

I call mine a leather covered grab bar..... but then again that does seem fitting. Must be why I don't like having passengers.

Re: Total Newbie Question - glove box removal

this is for a YJ, not sure if I mentioned. By behind do you mean, up and under or something I can get too easily. Do I need to drop the windshield and undo the whole dash?

I'm talking about a YJ. I had to my remove computer to do my EFI conversion.

just poke your head under the dash. you should see the "bolts". use a socket set.

just imagine (roll play) your are the grab bar. you need a strong mount to the dash. so that people don't pull you off the dash when your driver rolls the jeep.

you would have four studs that stick thru the dash and are attached by 4 bolts.


the next hint is that to remove the computer and bracket, you have to remove the battery to get to the bolts from the engine compartment. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Total Newbie Question - glove box removal

thanks, got em. It was easier for me to remove the whole heater box to get at that last screw on the bracket of the CPU, Wedged way in the back. Funny how no one wrote about that in their write ups [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] Thanks so much for the info, found those bolts in a second!

dude so sorry. remove the battery. two bolts hold the computer bracket to the tub.

it must have been a real PITA to get the computer off the bracket. it is allot easier to remove the bracket and the computer together.

and yes, not in any of the write ups. saw it shortly mentioned in some random Howell write up. [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img]
