Can someone please send me instructions on how to remove the center dash of a 85 SIII XJ6? I'm trying to check the interior light switches and ensure my rear defroster problem is not in the switch. I haven't been able to find the screws that hold this little center plate in place.

  1. Pull radio.
  2. Pull climate control knobs and undo nuts behind them (if there).
  3. Pull radio fascia, being careful not to damage the delicate fibreoptic leads.
  4. Unscrew those 2 big screws at the top of the exposed area.
  5. Unscrew the 2 smaller screws holding the top of the dash shelf on.
  6. Let the centre shelf dangle unless you want to label all the switch wires!
