10 days ago on the way back from a small road trip a new rattle started and I noticed that the gauges in the center pod were holding on only from the left side and the right side was shacking up and down with every bump on the road.
I was already picturing $$$$ repairs for a dash out operation out of warranty.
A quick YouTube search revealed that the center pod could be pulled straight out by just prying it carefully.
So tonight I decided to go for it.
Pre-op, sagging on the right
I was expecting a broken plastic tab, was surprised it was a missing screw.
Took the remaining screw out to try to identify it to find a new one, but after disconnecting the 2 cables going to the pod, I took the pod completely out, looked into the void, and to my surprise, I found the fallen screw within reach.
