It's replaceable but the dash has to come out. Any 84 or up regal should fit.

I think it is rivited to the dash pad so you will have to drill them out. I don't think you can do it while it is in the car. When I get home I'll take a look at one.

There's 2 frames under there. The one for the radio attaches to the one that supports the dash. But I didn't think the bolts are accessible. The whole changing the dash out was traumatic enough I've blocked details from my memory

so is that the other metal piece u posted that has rivets? so i should be good then if im only replacing the piece i posted up right ? without removing the dash
my piece is screwed to the piece u showing in the pic only a few screws towards the back that i can get from underneath the dash and 2 bolts that r towards the front by the lighter opening in the dash on the left n right side half way up in the opening im hoping thats all it is lol
