Hello...

I do conversion of Renault Master 2005 to motorhome. I need to route some cables from "home" to the navigation/multimedia computer which will be installed in place of original radio. For now I have cables ended in the column in the left side of wind shield. I need help how to continue. I assume that if I raise dash top I can route cables from left column to the place where original radio is. But doesn't see how the top is secured. I see only two torx in front of dast top.
Please help..

BIG job, don't do it. If Master like Trafic remove speedo trim? Use straightened wire coat hanger & feed that through, taping wires to the end. Done it that way on all my motors over the years.

I need to do.

But if there is some workaround to get wires from column/pillar to the radio compartment will be very happy.
Didn't find way to remove speedo trim.

Wont the cables come up through and behind the heater consul.
Its usually take a rod down.
Brake pipe is good for this as it bends easy. torch on the floor facing up, and follow the light path,.
Never had to take a dash out for any wiring going to the radio area, on any vehicle.
Be surprised if In Car Entertainment specialists do , also..

I route cable from top as from bottom is not possible to enter from "home part" to driver part.
The point where I stop is actually at radio antenna. So I intend to follow that cable as it goes where I need. Will try to find a way without dash removal.

Done...

I removed speddometer (not so easy) I got little more view to interior. After that I push solid wire in the gap at windscreen and after few try I can catch that wire in fuse compartment box. After that just one short step to the radio compartment. It can be done without removing speedometer with little more tryes as its little more blind operation.

Thanks for idea to use wire/pipe.

Could not find any info on how to remove dash, which was a clue in itself.
IF straight forward it would have explained, so realised ICE men would not need to remove it..
Glad you sorted it.....

The really drawback is that I don't know now if additional wires somewhere rub in sharp metal edge as I see maybe 40% of wire length only.
