Thanks! Yes, it would be MUCH easier to replace the carpet when the dash is out. As far as time is concerned, it took me around 2-3 hours to remove the dash, but part of that was filming and making sure I had cameras in the right places. If I were to do it again without worrying about filming it would probably be about half that time, actually.

Nice!! I'm envious of the easy sliding bowden cables for your hvac controls. Did you spray a lubricant down those cables as well as cleaning the control surface when you had the box out? Do you think that could be done without dash removal?

No, I didn't do any cable maintenance while I was in there, but I have to pull the console back out again to be replaced, so may do it at that point. It would be possible (I think) to lube them then without having to pull the dash.

Thanks for the tip!

Back working on the 931 this week, now chasing more vacuum leaks and lean surge issues. Picked up a smoke machine and it was a lifesaver for finding leaks

After chasing vacuum leaks for years, I can't believe I haven't gotten one sooner.
