It looks like I have to remove the steering wheel to get the panel that covers the instrumentation off....without taking that off, I can't take off the panel that spans from the center to the passenger side. In other words, to remove that panel (trying to get full access to wiring pigtail behind radio/heat/ac), does the steering wheel need to come off, and the instrumentation cover panel?
Basically I've got all of the little stuff off (glove compartment, radio, XLT Lariat trim panels on the dash etc.), but it's the big stuff that's restricting my access to wiring. None of the pigtailed wiring is accessible through the hood of the truck that I can see.
Thanks for responding! :)
