Removing center dash section Fan switch install

Need to pull the center trim piece around the radio and fan/heater controls, are there any hidden fastners clips or screws I should know about? Its gona be in the single digits tomorrow and I don't want to pry on anything and
cause any damage. By the way the Samurai is a 91 with rectangle dash vents.

Fan switch is dead went from 3 speeds to 2 to 1 to none!!

I guess I should have been on top of it when the weather was nicer out!

Re: Removing center dash section Fan switch install

I dont remember exactly, but I do recall it being pretty simple compared to some vehicles with the kinds of hidden screws you're talking about. There's those two at the top behind the little plastic covers and I *think* there's one behind the heater control faceplate (remove knobs and pop it out) though I may be thinking of a different vehicle. Might be one behind the ashtray slider thing.

I know this is really vague and probably not real helpful, it's just meant to be encouraging. I have had to take apart some dashboards that were real headaches but I recall the samurai was real simple.

I also hear the fan switch is easy to rebuild.

good luck!

Are you sure the fan switch is dead and not the fan resistors? When I lost a few fan speeds, the resistor block was the culprit, not the switch. No dash disassembly needed, IIRC (but I'm and early '88). FOr what it's worth.
