How did you get to the bolts to tighten them? I can't find a way to get my hands back in there. It looks like I'll have to take the whole dash apart.

I used a manual "L" shaped T30 last time ...I used the Rachet 1/4 drive before.... A telescopic Mirror Helps......I have done it so many times I do it by feel .Hope this helps... Torque should be around 10-15 lb/ft....IIRCC.....

Thanks for the fast response. I'll get an L shaped T-30 and give it a shot. Didn't know they made them. Much appreciated.
