The body of a 1976 corvette is held on by eight bolts that attach to the frame. there are tow bolts near each rear tire, one in front and one behind. There is a bolt in front of the doors on each side and then two on the firewall. There are also bolts that attach the bumper covers to the bumper which will need to be removed. Also, the front bumper brackets will need to be removed as the pass through the inner fiberglass fender. Other than misc grounds to the body and removal of wiring harnesses, you should be able to remove the body.AnswerI was going to ask the same question about a 1968 Vette. Are there not a lot more items to be disconnected, such as the steering column, transmission linkage, brake lines etc? thanxs
1. Shift Linkage / Clutch Pedal (if so equipped)
2. Steering Column
3. Oil Pressure Line or Wire (depending on year)
4. Temp Sender Wire
5. Ignition wiring (to coil or distributor if HEI)
6. E-Brake cable
7. Seat-belt anchor cable
8. Brake Lines to Master Cylinder
9. Tach cable or wire
10. Speedo Cable
11. Steering column/key lockout linkage from trans
12. Backup Light wire on trans
Lift s-l-o-w-l-y and check for anything that might still be attached
I must add to the list. My father broke the reverse-lockout tee handle on his car when he did a body removal. I suggest unscrewing the shift ball and removing the spring and t-handle as well. That way the shifter won't catch on the interior or shift boots and you can save the trouble of disconnecting the whole shifter from the transmission. -ku2002

Remove all the screws, take the arm rest off, and lift.

C4 Corvettes are a unibody construction. The body will not lift off in one piece, leaving a full frame rolling chassis. 1982 was the last year of the old fashioned, body on frame, Corvette. Mike V. ASE Master Certified
Use your door key in the front drivers side fender keyhole
stick the key in the driver front fender and turn.
Depends on the year, please elaborate.
pry it off carefully with a small dull screwdriver.
Take the throttle body off and spray carb cleaner really good through it. Should do the trick.
take the bolts out that hold them on and they will come right off.
corvette the camaro ss is fast but doesnt have the acc of the corvette
take off the belt, use a pulley puller to pull it then reinstall.
Owner's manual or Corvette shop manual. The fuse positions are marked from the factory unless you have one where the letters have worn off. Try looking at manuals at your local library. If you work on your car you should own a manual.
theres a special tool to remove 4 bolts. and you take it off and you be cruisin
Remove four screws. Lift off slowly, making sure to disconnect any wiring harnesses, etc., that may be connected to it. That'll get the top plate off, anyhow.
no you cant
