HG dash-frustrated!!

OK well i have been trying for the last hour to work out what is holding my dash on. The only screws i have seen holding it on are the top three....2 under the indicator lights and one in the top middle of the dash. I just cant find whats holding the bottom part of the dash on. Im just trying to remove the face with instruments still attached but I JUST CANT FIND WHAT THE HELL IS STOPPING ME!!!

anywayz any help on the removal would be GREATLY appretiated, cheers

Ignition Barrell. Turn key to accessories and put a safety pin into the hole in barrell & turn it more to the left & it will come out, then unscrew retainer ring. Then theres the h/light switch but someone else can explain that better than I could.

Please use, Holdenpaedia will get the first box on the left side. Post any suggestions.

Checklist..
1. Screws top into crash pad section..tick
2. Choke cable (if installed)
3. Windscreen wiper switch..pull off knob and unscrew
4. Ignition barrel as explained above
5. Headlight switch..which requires a degree of flexibility...but not much 1st disconnect battery as its easy to short out while removing...then sitting on the floor use left hand to feel up behind dash to switch area and there you should feel a little springy button on the side of the housing to the switch close to the back of the dash pushing this in releases the pull bit of the headlight switch..pull while pushing little button..unscrew metal retainer ..from front
6. Usually also easier if removed steering wheel already
7.Unplug associated wires and as the french say vua la'
hope that helps
