Dash removal to replace heater core

I found this while searching for info. Is this it? Seems to easy...

You will also need to remove the steering column, unplug the harness for the ps door, and the antenna wire. Under the hood you have to remove the wires that plug into the firewall under the fusebox and release the tabs from the plugs so the dash will come out. When you pull the dash out part way you will see a plug behind the harness that will need unpluged and you will have to disconnect the blend door.
I think that it...looks like fun.

I've dropped many Super Duty dashboards...it only takes a long time the first time you do it. Take your time, get plenty of light, and write down your steps so you can know what not to unscrew first the next time, and to make sure you get EVERY bolt put back.

I agree with wildbill. It is time consuming the first time but gets easier. If you miss any bolts while reinstalling it you'll have some nice new rattles.
