If I recall, no. It's just a matter of popping off the two clips on either side of it and there are screws under there and theres on more screw involed but I'm forgetting it.. Why ask, just go tackle it... The display is actually onliy like 2" thick, theres a flat computer unit under it tho thats a little larger than a double CD case (lol I have one sitting on my desk).
Take care and good luck.
Ya, I replaced my A/C Display Unit before. (My Display screen was shorted during respray and replaced another complete used unit. Search LED or LCD my post a couple of months back).
Yes, you have to unscrew the center console and unplug the ashtray & lighter harnesses and move the console a few inches back away from the dash. For easier access to the A/C unit, remove the glovebox. Remove Center Aircond Vent assembly (clip type, so ply from front). I remember the AC Display Unit has four screws to the dash. Below it is the AC Control Unit computer too.
Take out the "cupholder" in the console.
Remove the two screws in the back of the console.
Pop the 1/2" by 4" plastic cover at the front of the inside of the console piece.
Remove those two screws.
Pull the shifter boot from the console.
Pop those two pieces you spoke of ealier.
Remove the two screws under them.
Im pretty sure you have to remove the center vents too, cuz there's 1 more screw holding the A/C display unit there.
Just to be sure, like everyone else said, check Jeff's site. I used his instructions, and except for the passenger airbag stuff (2nd gen, and Jeff has a 1st gen) it was dead on.
Player, funny you should ask. This past weekend had to take mine out to replace a couple of burnt out lights. There are two screws on either side you have to take out. If yo pop the two clips out and look into the space behind there you can see the screws but really can't get to them without the center console out. I have the manual A/C but if I'm not mistaken you take them out the same.
Wait a second. Does the center console detatch right where the side screws are that hold the AC unit in place (the ones that you have to remove the covers to get to)? If that's the case then the stereo would move out of the way as well and allow you to pull the AC unit out. Did you follow that?
Yes and no. I beleive the stereo is also mounted to the two metal bracket behind the sides of your center console that is only held in by a couple of screws. If however you take those screw out.... well you get the picture. I didn't have to take out my radio to do it just the console. Hope this helps. What is it your trying to do again? If you need help e-mail [email protected]. If your not busy Sunday afternoon maybe we could get together and dick around with it.
I just took my digital A/C display out yesterday to replace it. My LED display stopped working a few weeks ago, so I got another one from a parted-out car.
I got the display out without taking out the dash or console. I took out the center air vent assembly and then popped off the two covers for the side screws. Then took out all three screws that hold the display in. I unscrewed the radio and moved it down a little for some more room.
After that, I spent about 30 minutes wiggling, adjusting, and moving the display around inside it's little area, trying to get it to come out. It takes a lot of tricks, but you can squeeze it out of its opening without removing the dash or console.
On a side note, the display I put in was from a 91 VR-4. The yellow LED's seem much more orange than my 92 display. The orange LED's look very close the red LED's, and the whole display is a little dimmer and darker than my 92. Interesting.
