thats what i did and it works great. a new dash. its easy to do all u need is a phillips head and a flat prying device, like a flat head screwdriver.
the dash slides straight out, though some prying may be nessesary, just dont break the plastic (a hook tool works best here). the potentiometer is a white ceramic square that comes off by unscrewing a phillips screw, and then it pulls straight out. bridge the 2 prongs with any wire.
