  2. Removing top dash cover?

    OEM Issues
    Has anyone removed the top dash cover? I have a vibrating sound like a clip broke on the passenger side under the dash between the tweeter and defrost vent.

    4x4 Drivetrain
    Just bought this 2003 with 160K miles on it. The only transmission fluid (TF) change information I have on it is the previous owner had it for 20K miles and didn't change it. It's in the shop for tie rod replacement and front axle work. Talked to the shop manager about the TF fluid, and he said...
