Default Dash Removal

Hoping cliffy chimes in with his online service manual.....

I have been looking, googling, searching, and for some reason cannot find a detailed description of how to remove the main dash from my Mustang. (The steering wheel, IP, glove box, etc).

Can anyone provide some input here? I have found about 7 bolts and removed them, but it feels like it is still attached by another 7, haha!

Thanks in advance!!

I used this when I replaced my heatercore 2 weeks ago and it was a big help.

Just swapped my dash, prepare for PITA butthurt. Are you trying to remove the entire dash with the metal support frame and the steering column? If so its 7 Bolts, the trim peices, and a whole lot of wirring.

it is a huge PITA to remove the whole dash!! Took me and a buddy a few hours to do. Putting it back in is even worse with all the wiring harnesses. Mark everything you do. Wish i knew how to post pics of my flamed dash but having no luck with it. Can't find how to attach from my pics..wtf!!

Here's the instrument panel RnR from the '03 shop manual, your '00 should be similar...
