W123 Dash Removal & Installation Instructions

Several years ago I wrote a very detailed set of instructions for the removal and installation of a W123 dash. If you need these instructions just send me an email and I will be happy to email you the instructions for FREE. BWhitmore246@gmail.com

Thanks. Bill Whitmore

Thanks Bill! I've done a dash r&r once, but could always use a written set of instructions. I will email you now.

Many years ago I removed my W123 dash after a practice run at a pick&pull. It's not as complicated as one might think, especially after the center console is out. Note: despite some instructions going around, it is NOT necessary to remove the steering wheel to remove and replace the dash.

The steering wheel does not need to be removed, but the steering column must be lowered slightly (loosen two nuts holding the column clamp) in order to remove the dash.

This requirement may vary from one car to the next of the w123. According to my old fart's memory, I didn't have to touch anything on the steering. But who knows, it was over 20 years ago.

I have removed and installed probably 15 123 dashes. Lowering the steering column is the best approach especially when nothing needs to be disconnected. Just loosen the two column nuts and the column will drop avoiding any contact with the dash.
