Question:

YOu were able to take the dash out one of the doors...I'm wondering if one could also take it out the back tailgate also then? turn it the long way? maybe? no? yes?

You won't get it past the back seat if you do it that way. I took mine out of the passenger door with good clearance and with the help of the other (more delicate) hands in the household.

Would definitely recommend one helper on passenger end of dash, and removal out the driver door.

Here is a look at the Electronic Climate Control removed from the car, annotated.

Note the large pin which you need to wiggle free of the dash on driver side.

The tool expands that spring, which lets the trombone end slip out . Good luck The aluminum corrodes the steel making it tough to twist and break free. Cut the evap and save an hour of swearing.

Ugly mess. The captive M6 in the frame member broke free, so I had to drill out the M6 to release the receiver. Chances of getting an old receiver out of car in place - near 0.
