5 Disconnect the wiring plug(s) from the instrument panel illumination control, radio/cassette player remote control switch, cruise control switch, and the alarm electronic control unit, as applicable.

6 Unclip the upper shroud from the steering column.

Refitting
7 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but on completion, if it proves necessary to adjust the alignment between the shrouds and the facia, loosen the steering column securing nuts and bolts. The fixings can be accessed through the holes in the lower column shroud (except on models where an electronic control unit is mounted in the lower shroud, in which case the shrouds must be removed again).

Adjust the position of the column (and hence shrouds) as necessary, then tighten the column fixings securely.

Glovebox - models up to 1992 Removal
8 Working under the glovebox, push out the two hinge pins, using a suitable punch or thin screwdriver if necessary.

9 Remove the two screws securing the cover to the rear of the lid.

10 Lift off the lid, leaving the cover held by the checkstraps.

11 The checkstraps can be removed by releasing their inner ends.

Refitting
15 Refitting is a reversal of removal.

Carpets
16 The passenger compartment floor carpets are secured at the edges by screws or various types of clips.

17 Carpet removal and refitting is reasonably straightforward, but time-consuming, due to the fact that all adjoining trim panels must be removed first, as must components such as the seats and centre console.

Headlining
18 The headlining is clipped to the roof, and can be withdrawn only once all fittings such as the grab handles, sun visors, sunroof (if fitted), windscreen, centre and rear pillar trim panels, and associated panels have been removed. The door, tailgate and sunroof aperture weatherstrips will also have to be prised clear.

19 Note that headlining removal requires considerable skill and experience if it is to be carried out without damage, and is therefore best entrusted to an expert.
