Rings are crimped to cardboard cutouts. Imperative that you remove tension of crimp (from back ) without disturbing the fiberboard. Small mortice to spread and plyers to hold secure is sufficient.
Once entire ring is relieved, retract one end of ring to center without bending. you can then insert needlenose plyer in end of ring and gently remove/rotate from cutout without distorting cutout or ring.

Ha!! TFB3!!"Thanks this is usefull information but since my english is not so great I want to make sure to correctly undestand what you wrote .

From what I understood.... The backside of the ring is secured by small mortices, which need to be folded back/pried off to relieve their grip from the cardboard edge... right?

Do you by any chance would be kind enough to describe what you used to "Fold back" these mortices, a small flat screwdriver?

Would someone have a detail picture of the Backside of these rings?

Thanks in advance a kind regards,

Thomas

Hoping someone can help. I repairing some minor cracks to the front of my dash and nub damage, the nubs are below the glove box door ( left especially) has been damaged, I've adjusted the door several times but it still hits the left one and wont open cleanly to sit on the nubs (which is what I assume they were made for)

TFB3: Original dash from a US 71 GTV, the top is in excellent shape, the GTV dash does have foam below the vinyl. (pic's in my resto thread)

pickeljr: Yes I have the glove box liner (thx for the clarification TFB3 ) and it's in excellent condition too, I'm sure I'll touch it up with some flocking once the resto is complete. I think the glove box liners are as rare as hen's teeth!

Anyone have any thoughts on the nub issue? Thank you

If someone could make a cad drawing of the liner it could be 3D printed, not sure how cost effective that would be unless multiples were needed.
