    I need to replace my Interior Lighting Module. However it is in a very inaccessible place under the dash behind the dash frame supports. Can anyone tell me how to change the module without ripping the dash to pieces?

    Well, in case you were wondering, this is how I did it. I used the hook on a coathanger pushed up between the accelerator mounting plate and dash support - a space that you can only get 3 or four fingers through. Then I basically grabbed the wire harness and jerked the module loose. Then I pulled on the wires to get the connector close enough to the opening, then detached the harness. I then spent 20 minutes or so fiddling around trying to get the old module out of the mess so it wouldn't rattle around on me. Then I hooked up the new module and cable-tied it in a new location that is easy to reach. Works like a charm now. If I have to replace it again, it will take about 10 seconds.

    this may be a little late but, Pull out the two large bolts holding the black bracket to the frt crossmember and remove the bracket with the modules attached, after I figured that out is was easy to remove the modules on the floor.
