How to Remove Central Dash Bezel (panel) 94 DeVille

Recommended Posts

The climate control screen in my Florida fresh 1994 Deville  is dead and I have a replacement.

I need to remove the center dash bezel trim panel that covers the fuel center and climate control.

I have already removed the outer covers on the cruise switch and headlight switch.

Found the hex bolt on the bottom of each side and a few other screws.

Something is still holding the bottom of the bezel.

Do I have to drop the steering column to release or find more hidden screws?

Nice looking Deville.

Big difference between 93 and 94. 94 was a completely different change in platform everywhere.

Anyway I am pretty sure that bezel pops out. I assume you are referring to the wood (or faux wood) bezel surround.

It has flat spring clips around it that snaps it into the main dash. 

Can someone confirm this. It has been awhile since I have touched a square body Deville.

Too bad if you drive that Caddy  in the winter here in lovely NY

Rock.... something around the steering column is holding it firm and force aint workin' to get it loose.

Prob. a hidden screw or clip hidden around the steering column.

Prob. gonna have to drop the column.

Will just wait on the FSM unless somebody gives me a clue.

Yea,    sad Im gonna drive the Caddy as a winter rat but its gonna be nicer than my trusty old 94 Buick

thats served me well for 6 years.

Tried to avoid a 4.6 engine Caddy with all those pulled head bolt/timesert horror stories.

Looked at a few 94-95 Deville/Fleetwood cars with the 4.9 but they were miled up or beat and worn.

It all came down to two 93s with under 100k.  This one had full 1 owner history from new, converted a/c,

not a scratch or parking lot scar, perfect interior and not a Fla. sunburn anywhere.

Can't ride my old Z-28, GTO or Triumph as they dont go so good thru the snow!

nice.

I have mine undercoated by a local company. 

It is not paint but rather a thick oil like coating that is sprayed into all of the panels. Hoping to preserve my 97 for a few extra years by having that done yearly.

May have to drop the column a little bit as the saginaw column is pretty close

SUCCESS!

With a hint on how to remove the small piece/bezel below the steering column a member

 Mcmarto on another forum I was able to remove the small piece and find the two hidden

screws and remove the entire panel/bezel and replace the climate control unit.

All functions work and I have a full display!

I bet my FSM will arrive tomorrow!   LOL!

Excellent. I assume the column did not need to be dropped?

NO dropping the column!

Pried on the bottom of the little plastic piece under the steering column it flipped up and released.

Took out the two hidden screws and it came off.

Swapped the climate control out and the replacement was plug n play and works fine.

My FSM still ain't come yet!
