84 Ranger Dash Removal

I have a water leak at the driver's lower corner of the windshield, above the clutch. Water comes in during a rain storm. There is a hole which needs plugging, directly behind the dash at the driver's left hand. There is no access from the exterior because the hole is located in that closed section where the wiper linkage is found.

If I could remove the dash to the left of the steering wheel, I could effect a good repair.

Is the dash easy to remove? Can one remove just a part? I've had the instrument cluster out once, which was not too difficult.

I think the '83 - '88 Rangers are the same basic interior.

Anyone done this?

Thanks,

Gordon

Yes I have and it wasn't hard at all. Just have a bunch of baggies for the different pieces you remove so all the screws go back where they belong. (you can write on the baggies to keep track).

Take out the instrument cluster then the dash pad and the rest is just as easy. I changed the one in my 87 from a blue dash to a gray one so it would match the gray Power Explorer seats that I installed along with the the rest of the grey interior.

Hi Darren,

Thanks for the reply. Your advice is good and exactly what I did yesterday. From appearance it looks complicated, but one screw at a time does the job. A good opportunity to check on things and do a little dusting. Once every 24 years.
