    i am thinking about making a hood to go over the top of the section of the kick panel that goes into the cowl cavity ,attach to cowl so when kick panel is installed it will divert water from it. sounds like alot of work but all 3 of the 2nd gens i had leaked one was only 6 years old when i got it(71)

    Uhhg. The passenger kick is off now too. That nasty screw up top. I didn’t want to tear the heater core out. I went to Lowe’s and bought a set of craftsman screwdrivers that are bent about a 1/2” at the tip. Worked great to get that highest screw out. Might have worked on the driver kick so that I didn’t have to take the whole parking brake off.

    Good luck.

    My friend bought me one of these for Christmas over 10 years ago. We use the hell out of it. Great for getting screws and bolts out of tight spots. Handle comes off and can be used with a cordless drill. Don't know what we ever did without it.
