"wait to start" light module

My module that holds the "wait to start" and other lights is loose in the dash. Anyone else ever had this break before, and how did you fix it?

You have to pull the I/C bezel and see what is "broke" There are 3 screws that hold that to the bezel. tabs cab be broke, screws backed out, etc

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

Mine came loose, couldn't find one in local wreckers so I just took the dash off payed it flat, put the indicator where it should go and silicone the crap out of the back. Hasn't moved in 2 years!

Looks like on all three places the screw receptors are broke. superglue will probably fix it. For as much as it gets touched all it should need is something to hold it in place. How easy is the black bezel to remove?

There's 2 trim pieces that run across lower part of bezel (runs accross whole dash under radio and above glove box) pop the 2 pieces off with a flat screw driver. Behind that there's 2 torque screws (or 7 or 8mm socket). The top of the bezel is just push and click that hold it so give it a lil tug once 2 screws are out.

Make sure if you have tilt steering its down. Pop off headlight knob, reach in behind unplug dual tank switch if you have. Than unplug WTS light and its off.

Thanks, sounds super simple.

On the topic of dashes, do you have a dash mat? would you recommend one for dash preservation?
