Question about 2008 Ford F 250 Super Duty 4WD
I want to remove the plastic trim that encompasses the CENTER dash section surrounding the radio, A/C vents, temp controls, upfitter switches, etc. This is one solid piece and I believe is always black in color. The purpose of removing is to get behind the gauge cluster and that cover is mounted beneath the center trim fascia. There are no obvious fasteners and it seems very secure to simply pry off. I need to be cautious so as not to break it. Thanks to anyone who replies.
There are 2 finish covers on each side,looks like the one on the left is directly over ash tray?
You have to remove these 2 covers and there will be a screw located there. Remove these 2 screws remove the upper center finish panel by pulling outward to release the panel retaining clips.

disconnect the negative battery cable from the Altima's battery.
Pry up the trim panel surrounding the gear stick. The trip panel is held in place by plastic clips that will disengage when the panel is pried up. Use a flat-head screwdriver to pry up the panel. The panel doesn't need to be completely removed, just pried up enough to reveal two Phillips screws along the bottom of the radio trim panel.
Remove the two Phillips screws along the bottom edge of the radio trim panel, just above the gear stick. Remove the two Phillips screws from above the radio. Remove the ashtray.
Pry the radio trim panel loose with your fingers or a flat-head screwdriver and remove it.
Remove the four Phillips screws holding the radio in place. Set the screws aside for use later. Slide the radio forward and disconnect the wires from the back of the device.
Slide the cage included with your new stereo into your dash adapter. Slide the stereo into the cage and dash adapter.
Connect the wires from the dash to the back of your new stereo. All stereos have slightly different connections methods, so refer to the owner's manual accompanying your new stereo for the proper connection procedure.
Slide the stereo and dash adapter into the dashboard. Use the previously removed Phillips screws to mount the stereo in place. Replace the radio trim panel and gear stick trim panel. Reconnect your battery.
If you are putting a aftermarket stero make sure you buy a stero harness that plugs into the cars harness, on the back side of the harness you just installed will have open wires to conet to your new stero. If you cut the wires from your car to try to splice it to the new raido it can cause problems with the electrical system includeing making the transmission shift or act funny. you can pick the harness at wall-mart, car auido, best buy, or any car auido place.
