Its a pain in the ***.


Remember everything is really easy, you just have to do it once to figure it out.

1. Pull the weather stripping off your door, just pull it straight off.

2. Pull the plastic piece on either side of the console off, they are in the door jam, triangle pieces. I don't remember if you have to pull the two vent pieces off first or not.

3. This reveals 3 10 or 13 mm bolts on either side, unbolt all of them.

4. Look in the door jam, there is a plug right where the door closes that bolts the dash in, unbolt that.

5. Ontop of the dash down by the window there are two 4x4 panels, pop those off with a screw driver. There is one bolt on either side. Its easier to look from the outside down to see them.

6. Under the drivers side there is a bolt down by the drivers feet torwards the middle of the console.

7. Unplug the two plug that are right where the drivers knees would be, they are pretty big. Directly under the steering column. You can pull that plastic piece right by the drivers knees straight out, makes it easier.

8. Now make sure your wheels are straight, and follow the steering column down, there is one bolt that holds the column itself to another rod that goes through the firewall, unbolt that.

I'm pretty sure that's all of the main stuff. THe whole console with plastics will come out as a unit. Just remember you dont have to have a high IQ to work at an assembly plant, everything goes together real easy so don't overthink anything.

You'll have to take your front seats out to actually get the console out.

Great information. Also handy to check these same fastener locations to prevent loose dash noises which is why I wanted to know the information for the future.

I just finished replacing my blend door actuator tonight. It was the one on the passenger side. There are a few things that are important to know when you are removing the dash. The instructions above are pretty complete so I will just add a few points to it.

1. The bolts under the 4x4 panels up by the windshield like to drop behind the dash once you get them out. So grab them with a magnet and take them out before you lose them. Just a point about those bolts, there are two on the driver side and one on the passenger side.

2. There are three (if I remember right) wiring harnesses on the passenger side that also need to be disconnected to move the dash out far enough to get to the blend actuator.

3. The plug mentioned in the door jam is only on the driver's side. That bolt is hard to get to and is easiest accessed from outside the truck. Stand in front of the driver side door, open the door all the way and you can see the bolt head. Use a magnet to keep it from dropping into the frame.

4. The dash is very heavy. Be sure to have someone to help you put it back on. Lift it up slightly higher than you think and it will fit right back on.

5. It is best to remove the grab handles from the A pillar or the dash won't want to come out. Just remove the two caps and take the 4 bolts (8mm socket) on each side out then remove the entire plastic panel.

This wasn't too bad of a job. I have never done it before and found all of the bolts just fine. My truck only had two inside the door frame on the passenger side and three on the driver side. The part was $32.36 from ford and the dealer wanted $200 in labor to replace it (Gullo Ford in Conroe, Texas). The entire job took me less than 2 hours.

Other than the few points I made here, the instructions above are great. Best of luck doing this repair and don't forget to re-attach your steering column to the steering shaft that goes back through the firewall.

For the record, my truck is a 2008 F-250 CC SWB King Ranch with dual auto air. The ford part number ends in 616.
