Thanks im going to get my buddies dremel tomorrow. Also i have to get some #7 screws and some 1/2 inch tap screws for the bracket. Plus primer and paint. I also have a question. How many coats of primer should i put on? Do i need to put one coat on first let it dry them put another on then let it dry and put the paint on? BTW what kind of paint would stick to this ohc? its already sanded and ready to be primerd and painted.

Beat me to it. And don't forget to wet sand either.

you know i thought about taking it apart. Do you unscrew the 2 screws on each end and there's 4 screws in the middle on the side? Of course on the bottom of the OHC.

FX4WANNABE01 aka Shane did this before I stole it from him hahahah he pretty much nails it with how to take it apart

Remove the 7 screws that are circled in yellow using your phillips screw driver. I used a #1, but a #2 should also work. On the '98+ units, they are held in using Torx screws.


Open up your Garage Door opener door/tissue holder, to allow it to be free from being clipped to the "housing":


Remove the screen unit, the map lights, and garage door as an assembly. Now, it's a little bit of a wiggle to get it out, but be gentle with it. It should come out with no problem.


Once she's "poped" out of place, roll her over and set her up like this:


Next to remove is the "screen unit." I call it screen unit because I don't know the proper name of it. Anyway...there's a "clip" on the far front of the unit that hold it in place....


With the back side facing you, pull up on that far front screw hole(the orange hold at the bottom of the pic), and the screen unit will come right out:


This is the $200 Ford part...the "screen unit".

I have mine on the A-pillar and like it there.

The top of the console (the part the faces the front of the truck) looks beat up pretty good. Maybe its just the picture?
