Bastard of a job - had to do it to replace the heater core in my Ghia once. Dash comes out as a complete assembly
Remove hood release, drop handbrake down
Loosen toe plate screws on steering column, unbolt column bracket from pedal box, drop column onto seat
Remove Speaker grills at lower corners of dash
Remove surround from around radio (4 self tappers on Ghia)
Remove bolts from lower corners of dash that go into right angle brackets
Remove 2 bolts from lower centre of dash (under radio)
Remove 5 screws from demister vents
Tilt dash back, disconnect all wires, vac hoses etc. MARK ALL CONNECTORS BEFORE PULLING APART!!! There are two very similar connectors near the steering column (I think they came from it!) that will fit into each other. If you get them arse about IT CAUSES FRIED WIRES!!!! Be warned!!! (had to replace some wires under my dash as a result....)
Ensure earth leads on right hand side are disconnected - don't forget to reconnect it!
It's an awkward sucker so get a mate to help you lift it out!
If you can, use both an XF factory manual and Gregorys manual together - makes life easier
Ummm, I think that's it
Best of luck!!!! (a job I never want to do again......)
