Default Need Help Please - How to remove rear bedroom wall

We have a 88 PT with a rear bedroom & closet behind the head of the queen bed. We have 2 issues to deal with behind the wall. The water heater stopped working, we hope we just have to push the reset button. 2nd we have to replace some of the tail light wires, but to get to both of these we have to pull the rear bedroom wall on the drivers side to reach both issues. I have searched, but can’t find on the WOG site, we are new so I’m probably looking in the wrong place. Our question is can anyone please point us in the direction of a post or link that shows you step by step or pictures of how to remove the nightstand, head board & wall. I have the nightstand unbolted, but it won’t come out. I’ve searched & used a magnet but still can’t find the screws that hold the long little box in front of the nightstand. Is it possible to just remove the head board to get the nightstand out?
Thank you

Blue Bird was great at hiding screws, so look behind the fabric folds of the headboard for screws, carefully search the carpet in the side panels for screws along the bottom edges. Look inside the drawer for small screws also.

An example of how the screws are hidden related to the front center drawer console.

solder a new wire on to the yellow wire,no need to take the wall out for that little fix.
The water heater comes out too,without removing everything.
I think Curt Sprenger did a good writup on that job.

I looked up Al Fink, I didn’t find anything with the wall removal, maybe I just missed it, I will look again. Oh, my husband forgot about soldering the wires, we can try that. Unfortunately we still have to get to the reset button on the water heater. From what we can tell it’s on the outside wall on the bottom & I can’t reach it.
Thank you.

Use a magnet to find those pesky hidden screws in the shag carpet

To access the water heater you have to get in the closet. Most of those
walls are held in place with metal brackets that are attached on the back
side of the walls.
There is a wall in the closet with a small access door in it. Remove that
wall. That wall is held in place with metal L-brackets. If yours was like my 89
there is a horizontal 1x4 trim board that holds the closet light switches on that needs to be removed also.
Once you have that wall removed it is easier to work on your water heater.
You may want to remove the mirrors to, you don't want 7 years of bad luck
Good luck
