Does anyone have experience taking off the dashboard panels in a 92 F150 (or something similar)?
My alternator went a few weeks ago & in the middle of its replacement, I noticed a small plume of smoke (and a burning smell) coming from a vent at in dash (on top, center - directly behind the radio). Once the alternator was installed, my radio, AC/heat no longer worked.
Prior to me purchasing it, this truck had sat (previously) for several years and became home to several generations of mice; I am thinking they chewed through some wiring back there & when the alternator surged, a wire(s) burned. I have removed the radio, but need to take off the major panels to get better access to the wiring clusters. I am able to locate and remove all of the screws on the entire dash, but even with this, the dash panels do not pop off easily... also trying to get back in there to clean out any mouse sh$t!
I browsed the forum for articles & decent diagrams, haven't found any yet....bought a Chilton's book, but the diagrams are too small to make out what's going on.
Can anyone help a girl out? Any suggestions on better literature that might have larger, more clear pics and/or instructions?
