    Carpet removal

    Quick question, do I need to to remove the dash to replace the carpet? Looking to swapping mine out, it's a 91 vert. Thanks

    If you want to do it right yes, because there is a portion under the AC box. Many will just cut around the AC box as all of it will be covered when you have the center console back in.

      Yeah, just saw that. Don't think there would be any issues iss I were to cut as suggested, right?

        The carpet on the sides of the trans tunnel will be slightly loose when reinstalled if cut, but it's NBD considering how annoying the HVAC box removal can be.

          If you plan on removing the dash then it's not too hard to then lift the climate box and slide the carpet under but all that entails is a lot more work than to simply cut the carpet. The choice is upto you.

            I will be removing the dash as I am planning to swap that out as well. So will see if I can remove the carpet without doing any cutting. Thanks for the feedback all.

            Quick question on the colour of the dash. The donor car has indigo blue colour interior and the dash looks like it is not black. Wondering if it is my eyes or is that truly a bit on the blue side to closely match the interior.

              The dash is a bluish black on all E30s.
