There are two styles, '65-6 and '67-9.  You can remove both with a screw and a nut on the back side, using a 1/4 drive ratchet set. It's a little bit of a job, but do-able with the dash "loose".

But first you need to deal with the shifter "knob". On a '65-6 the "T" unscrews. On a '67-9 the knob is "supposed" to pull off (but with great force) but is thereafter "ruined" and won't go on very tightly afterwards. Between the "great force" you usually would have to use and the damaged fit afterwards, I advise against that method. Best finagle it thru the hole, as sometimes you CAN manage to do without too much further damage. 

This leaves the shifter loose but still attached to the cable.

I've had many of both styles apart for servicing, so I know all about all the tricks.

Hi All!


What is the best way to remove a late model Powerglide dash? Do I have to
disconnect the shifter cable and that tiny little clip or is it possible to
unscrew the shifter quadrant from the dash, leaving the cable hooked up?
