Angry Trying to remove Grand Wag dash

I'm trying to pull the dash out of my '87 Wagoneer and can only see two torx bit screws; one on each side below the dash, above the kick panels. I really dont want to remove the windshield although I know that would be much easier. I also want to be sure not to damage the pad or have to remove the pad to get the dash out.

I did use the search feature but found conflicting info as to if the screws up along the windshield are #3 phillips head or if they are torx. If they are the torx are they the same size as the ones below the dash above the kick panels? Does anybody have proof positive of which they are? And how many of those buggers are there? Is there a map or decoder ring as to where they are located?

Late model they are torx, lift up the windshield gasket and you will see them.

Windshield is easy to remove, and makes it much easier to get them out.
If you leave the windshield in I guarantee you'll booger up the dashpad.

Ooooo K ... windshield must come out

And the screws are torx. I guess it wont matter what size bit it is cuz they'll be easy to see now.


Its not what I wanted to hear, but it is what it is. Thanks guys

If you take the dash pad off first, then theres nothing to ruin getting them out.

Seeing as how its currently taking up the garage space its better to pull the windshield and risk breaking it that to kill the dash pad. I've just about got the thing gutted. I need to pull the fuel tank whozamahwhatsit for ya and then ship yer stuff to yas.
