You will need:

Philips screw driver
10mm socket and rachet
large set of sockets (removing steering wheel)
3 screws
Torex heads (think thats how its spelt)

Ok, as promised the DIY Dash removal.

First off, lets get rid of anything that could be in your way. Remove the Stereo HU and all those fun parts (open the ash tray and Pull) dis connect everything and get it out of your way, i have not taken pics of this as it is very easy.

Unscrew your deck, unclip and remove. and remove. Push all the wires for this area back and out of the way. At this point i recomend disconecting you r as tray light and cig lighter as well, although not nessisary.

Lets also remove the center console (the console between the seats) again very simple. remove you shifter knob, the boot will fall down and that is a good thing. Using a screw driver pop the base plate off. now you will see 2 screws that need to be removed.



remove these two screws. i would recommend sorting your screws as you remove them as there will be alot of them.

now, if you look at the base of the center console there are 2 screws on each side (one just infront of the sliding bars and one just below the center console box, remove these.

Now if you look at where the ebay rests when released you will see a rectangular plate, pop this out and pop the little metal suport out, pull your ebrake all the way back and remove the center console. sorry i don't have picks for this but its really quite easy.

3 more things to remove and you can start on the dash. notw for the glove box, there are 6 screws and a light.

1) Glove box - 6 screws located here

3 on the bottom

once opened, 3 on the top


2) gauge cluster - pull the hood off, un-screw the 4 scres on the side and unclip from behind.

3) Steering wheel - heres the fun one. DISCONNECT THE BATTERY! using the torex screw heads there are 2 bolts holding the steering wheel air bag in place loosen these and pull gently, you will notice 2 wires coming from the center, the left most one (black) is your horn, disconect. now gently pry between the second clip and the airbag modual (this is alittle tricky and feel free to PM me with ANY questions, better safe then sorry) once this is off remove the air back, remove the center bolt (i used a steering wheel puller) but a rachet should work.
with this off you can remove the steering wheel. Under the steering collumb casing there are 3 screws remove these and the top and bottome casing can be removed. Disconnect the wiper swith and the head light switch. (harness can be pulled off from the bottom of the switch, there are 2 screws on each of these and they can be removed.

OK , thats all done, get a drink or 6 (makes it more fun) now we get to the "hard" part.

Get you 10 mm socket and rachet, starting on the driver side.
remove these 2


now there is one behind where the cluster was
remove this as



remove the caseing with the fuse box cover, this is two screws and then just pull, i left mine attached by my feer ( later realized how mush of a pain in the *** this became)

there are two more screws on the driverside that are now exposed.
Here

and Here


7 more to go.

now lets sit in the passenger seat. remove these two bolts


and

these are located behind where the glove box was.

looking up here


you will see your passenger side air bad help on to the car by 2 bolts, you guessed it, unscrew them!

ok, two more to go


Take these off and thats it. now comes the pulling, and pulling and pulling, you will need two people for this.

Take your time as you start to remove the dash there is a sensor that needs to be unpluged on the top passenger side and the dimmer switch needs to be disconected as well.

I sudjest the owner of the car takes the driver side as it is the most tricky. sarting on the passenger side give a pull and you should hear a snap sound, that is because the das is still help on by 3 clips along the glass. THERE IS NO WAY TO UNDO THESE THAT I COULD FIND. you have to pull and pull till its loose, then remove. When you have it out you can replace the clips with new screws

Hope this is helpfull and if there is any clarity need pm me and i will adjust this DIY. Thanks all.

Here is what you are left with







then after back together

Re: DIY: Complete Dash Removal

where the clear piece meets the hood there is little room to get your fingers in. Just put your fingers in that gap with your thumbs on top of the hood and pull. Don't be scared, it doesnt take too much pressure. The top clips will release and then the bottoms are self explanitory. Hope this helps.

Re: DIY: Complete Dash Removal

it might actually be easier to grab the bottom but either way just give it hell and youll hear the **** behind it cracking but dont worry bout that after like 4 or 5 times you wont even hear that anymore

honestly though if you are having trouble getting that off i wouldnt even try the entire dash LOL

Re: DIY: Complete Dash Removal

I bought my 2007 Tiburon smashed up and now I want to change the dash. Does anyone have any ideas whether a dash from the 2004 Tiburon will fit? Unfortunately my Hyundai Dealers
here in Winnipeg don't know anything and I don't wanna guess and end up having it not fit. If anyone could find out that would be awesome!

to remove the vent you will need to completely remove the dash. they have scree holding them from the inside, good luck

This is going to help a lot! Question is; how long will this normally take? (I'm working 6 days a week and only have a couple times a year when I get two days off in a single week back to back)
