    Question Removal of 1993 f350 dash bezel...how do i remove the light switch? PICS

    Hello i am trying to remove the bezel behind the steering wheel (where the spedometer is) and i got it to pop out but right now the light switch is in the way to remove it so how do i take the light switch off?


    (this is what is in the way)



    there is a little hole right here idk if this has something to do with removing it?

    Stick a small screwdriver in the slot and pull towards you while holding the knob.. this releases a spring clip of sorts.. hold pressure on the screwdriver while pulling on the knob and it will come off. Right below the switch there is a trim piece that will pop off with a screwdriver you need to take it off and the one like it on the other side of the steering column to access the screws for the dash bezel.

    That should get you going. I am not sure you can access this from the front though. Easy enough to get to from the rear. Gotta have your good feelers though.
    Good luck and welcome to the site.

    The knob will come off from the front without accessing the "button" on the switch for removal of the front panel.. they are a bi### to get to so ford made it easier.

    Depending on what you're up to and the spacing, maybe leave it connected and rotate as an assembly.
    Works well for me in chevys and bigger Intls when I'm going in the cluster.
    With door open, tilt set down and a little flex of molding saves steps.

    brad sometimes you worry me, good eyesite though.
