The shelf is only held in, suspended, by 3 screws through the top of the backplate and one at the side through a small tab about 6" in front of your mounting clip. The vertical back blate is thin sheet metal with a slotted grille for mounting a single loudspeaker. Because it's designed to fold up if you have an accident it is quite flimsy. They can also suffer due to water leaks from the screen above. The shelf itself is just a piece of hardboard which warps if it gets wet. They are handed of course so not much use looking for one over here. Shouldn't be hard to find but expect to pay a premium for a nice one.

Thank you Derek! Now I need what to look for! (or what not to look for... it does not sound too attractive! Haha). Did all cars have them?

The shelf was standard throughout the life of the Amazon and AFAIK the part # was the same over that time. In the lower dash edge at the end above the "shelf", there should be a small pull-down switch for a light which lights up this shelf. The light is basic and takes a bare bulb.

Thank you, Derek. Yes! My car does have the flimsy light switch and bulb below and at the corner of the dashboard at the passenger's side. I hope to find a good shelf one of these days.
