Did you find the nuts on the inside? There are plenty of threads talking about this.





This should get ya a good start! Good luck, they look to be a big PITA

If you drill them out, you can have the brackets installed with new bolts in about 30 minutes. I used 3/8 by 1inch bolts with self locking nuts with 9/16 heads.

I had to remove my dash to get to the nuts on the inside. I had to cut away all the sealer they use. Its all over in there.

1991 YJ, rebuilt 4.0L in spring 2009 at 234,000 miles, no lift yet, slightly offset wheels, 235/75/15 tires for now, rag top, sold the hard top. Over 35,000 miles on the rebuild and counting.

2006 Jeep Liberty. Nothing special, all stock.

They use locktite on those. You need to applly heat before you try and take them out.

Man, that was a PITA for what seemed like it was going to be a minor modification, ha ha.

It turns out to be a good project, though. Taking off the dash definitely makes it faster and easier and drilling out the Torx bolts officially makes you a YJ owner, ha ha ha.

I wouldn't even bother with trying to take off the Torx and/or reuse them. Just drill them out and use a good hex bolt and nut to replace them.

I had a time with my 89. My sons 94 seemed to be infinitely easier. There is just more room in there to move. I ended up finding rust under windshield and pulled the entire dash and replaced it all. It took about 2 months working in my spare time. What a job just to replace 4 bolts!
