Kenwood DNX7100 Installation in a 2000 Ford F350

I'm looking at what I need to do to install a Kenwood DNX7100 in the dash of my wife's F350. I can't figure out how to retain the unit in the dash. The box that surrounds the unit will not fit into the dash no matter how I figure and measure. I removed the instrument cover in order to measure the supports in the dash, but I just don't see how this all fits together. I'm a lifelong motorhead, but I'm definitely a newbie to this kind of install. Does anyone have any advice how I can go about this? I don't want to cut anything until I have a well thought out plan of attack. Thanks.

I need to know how to remove my DNX7100 from my

I have a 2004 ford escape so it may be similar, but I just pop open the front section of panel that is around the headunit and heating controls and what not with a flathead screwdriver. That should pop open really easy!! Than on the side of the dnx7100 there are locks holding it in that you can pop off to let it lose and plug the cable into the back. I have my ipod cable coming out through the glove box and works great.

Dim Mode

Make sure the orange wire with white stripe is connected to your dash illumination/parking lamp circuit. There should be a tag on it that says 'ILLUM' (unless the installer clipped it). That should dim the display whenever your lights are on.

If that doesn't do it enough I think your going to have to dial down the brighness - and that will do it for all functions.

Factory controls interface?

Call these guys at and purchase the SWC module that matches your vehicle (ask for Scroche brand). Once you purchase the SWC module, make sure you read the installation instructions two or three times before you install it. Once installed, these SWC units work great. I just completed the installation on my 2008 F150 with the Kenwood DNX-7100 and my steering wheel interface works perfectly.
