e46 interior Qs.

Im getting ready to upgrade the system in my car and want to add navigation, but hate the flip out look. I want to install a screen in the dash like a HUD but need to know how to take apart the entire dash. Does anyone have a link or know what manual would list that process?

Also, if anyone has a link to radio removal that would be good too.

Finally, I also need to know how to remove the trim and door panels.

Pretty sure a Bentley manual would cover all of that... or Haynes, whoever made the manual that year. I assume this is a custom dash job for the HUD? Let me know how it turns out, with pics. I've been achin to install a slick HUD display myself.

If this is what you are after, the install is easy, it's the wiring that can get to be a headache...All you have to do to do this is remove the dash trim (wood, metal, whatever you have) release the screws that hold the radio and IHKA, remove the sunglass holder and replace with the IHKA. To do a HUD is a little more involved, it takes special glass in the windshield (without the special glass the image is distorted) mirrors that have to be adjusted to reflect the projected image onto the glass, and of course a projector it would be quite an aftermarket task to say the least.
