Question about 2008 Ford F 250 Super Duty 4WD

1 Answer

* * * Removal of Interior Trim Panel * * *

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.

How do you remove the radio from a 2006 ford f-150 truck?


Open the ash tray, and on each corner pull out. The center trim panel ( from the top of the ash tray to the top tray on the dash ) is held in with 6 spring clips, the 1st time you remove it, it is hard to pull out.

Work you way up pulling out each side. The HVAC panel is attached to the center trim panel, and has 2 cam over connectors on it, and at the top if the PAD ( PAssenger Airbag Deactivation ) light with very small wires. Once you have the center trim panel off, you will see the 4 bolts holding the radio in.

Pro Fit International sells mounts, and they have some nice directions in PDF format available for download that show the removal process. Just look up a VSM for your MY truck, and on the listing page it will list the part number as a URL, this is the PDF version of the instructions.

How do I remove the fan switch to replace it on the dash under the radio?


Have your radio code before you pull it out with the right radio tool. This pull would involve removing this parts.
  1. Glove compartment
  2. Driver side panel
  3. Center top dash board
  4. Defrost switch carrier
  5. Radio unit
  6. Center lower half of dash
So I'd suggest go to your local public library and look for your car manual. It would be either Chiltons or Clymers manual, it's not as precise a Bentley VW Official factory repair manual. Yes it really involves taking all those parts out just to get to the rotary switch.

How to remove the dashboard of a 1999 acura tl


The easiest way to remove the radio from a 1997 Acura TL is from the front. Assuming you know your anti-theft radio code, disconnect the negative side of your battery. See the last paragraph if you have lost your anti-theft radio code.
Next, remove the plastic wood trim from the dashboard surrounding the radio. To do this open the glove box, reach up inside and push out on one of clips holding the wood trim, as it comes loose grasp the trim from the front and carefully pull the trim until each clip unsnaps from the dash. The attached Heater/AC control panel above the radio comes off with the wood trim, so just unclip the 2 wire harnesses from the back and set trim panel aside.
Next, using a phillips screw driver, remove the 4 screws holding the black plastic radio frame into the dash, then pull the radio forward to remove it. Disconnect the 2 wire harnesses and antenna cable from the back of the radio to complete the removal. If you are putting in a replacement radio, just loosen the two small bolts holding the radio on the back of the frame, and then slide the radio out of the frame.
