2000 F350 dash removal

Hello all.

I am planning to install a new stereo/ nav unit in my 2000 F350 crew. It's a double din size radio, so it's a bit bigger than the stock unit.

My question is how do I go about taking the dash apart so I can get in there to secure the new unit?

I know I'll have to enlarge the opening a touch, but I want to take the dash surround off so I can get in there and I don't want to break anything!!

It looks like it just snaps on and off, but I'm hoping someone here can tell me before I break something!!

Thanks for the help, John

Re: 2000 F350 dash removal

the front covering does just snap on/off. start removing it from the bottom.

if your new unit is double din, it should be the same size as factory?

Most of the instrument cluster surround is just clipped in.... but the old radio will have to be removed to access two screws inside the top of the radio opening.... 7mm socket if I recall correctly.

Radio removal is with the U shaped tools...

Re: 2000 F350 dash removal

Ok, thanks for the quick replies. The new radio is double DIN, but the stock one is about DIN 1/2!! It's a bit bigger, so I'll have to open up the hole a bit when I get there.

I made some of those U tools and they work great to get the old ones out.

Thanks again for your help. John
