Eric, Thanks for the info. I have the dash apart trying to troubleshoot a problem with the vac system for the heater/ac and got the thing out without a problem. Taking it apart I decided to heck with it and feel that I can't find the right place to put the glue so I ordered a rebuilt one from Andrews in Princeton, MN. ~$85. Again, thanks for the tips.
