Remove foam insulation floor
« on: 01 April 2024, 14:36:58 »

Hi. Im removing the interior from a 95 omega in preparation for some welding on the floor. Have gotten all the seats out and also the centre console, carpets and rear floor foam insulation.
The question is the thick foam insulation under both front seat footwells. This seem to dissapear up the torpedo wall behind the dash. And also over the propeller shaft tunnel under the dash. Is it all just one big piece over both front footwells? Seems like the only options to remove this foam is to either remove the dash or to cut the foam into more managable pieces? Really dont want to remove the dash.

It's a single piece from memory.

You would do well to remove the dash if only to properly inspect where the infill panel slots into the panel behind the dash. If you're welding up the floor, then whilst you're in there... ;)

The hardest part of dash removal is finding (and refitting) all the screws that hold the end caps (with the air vents) to the dash structure. The actual dash is only held in by 5/6 bolts.
