The complete front dash panel needs to be removed, it simply pops loose by pulling it forward. You will then had to disconnect all of the wiring harness connectors, headlamp,powerpoint,4x4 selector, pedal adjust switch, AC controls, rear window switch, and info/setup/reset switch. Each connector has a push retainer release on it. The radio is held in place by (4) screws and can be slid out after removal. Put the shift lever, and tilt whell in the full down positions to help with dash removal. You might also want to remove the pillar post handle for added clearance.

if you dont know how to change it,you can screw up a lot of things,what you should do is take it to your local independent raido shop and let them install one for you,wont cost that much,but you will know it was done right.


These first three aren't even close... The two square panels at the lower left and right corner come off and there are screws under this. The square panels I'm talking about are the one on the left with the cigarette lighter and the one on the right with (if equipped) the 3.5" line in audio input. There are small recessions on the underside of these you can grab with a flathead screwdriver. Under these are two 7mm screws. Remove and then pull out and up to remove the bezel. Have fun trying not to break the snaps/clips that hold the rest of that bezel in place. The radio then has 4 more of those 7mm screws holding it in place

I have a 2014 Ford F250 and needed to pull the dash to replace the factory radio. Mr Andy was exactly correct on taking the dash apart. The hardest part was getting all the wires unclipped with out breaking anything. Took all of 5 minutes counting tool hunting. Thank you Mr Andy!

No problem! I hate when people put blah blah out there just to see themselves talk so I had to set this simple task straight. Good luck with your SuperDuty!
