    Need some help getting that old unit out? Here’s some guidance from our buddy Randy Goodling.

    All 67-68 standard consoles had a storage compartment. The slide up doors are different between the 2 years due to the handle being different. The 67-68 Mustang console also had this slide up door. This slide up door works like the top on a roll top desk. In order to replace it the door must be slid off the tracks from the bottom. In order to do that the front of the console must be removed from the body of the console.

    To remove the front of the console there will be 2 Phillips head screws going into the metal dash frame above the radio. Then slide the door open and reach around on each side of the door. There are 2 studs with self tapping nuts on each side of the door, 3/8" socket as I recall, remove those nuts. Then you will need to reach up to the backside of the radio. In the middle of the radio body there will be 1 nut that holds the back of the radio up, 7/16" or 1/2" socket as I recall. That will need removed. Then find where the antenna plugs into the radio body, should be on the passenger side rear corner, and unplug that. With all that done the front section of the console should be ready to remove. Pull it straight back towards the rear of the car. You may need to lift it a little to clear the lower console pad. Do not lift too high as you risk breaking the plastic frame of the console where those 4 studs go through it. Also be careful of the rear radio mount, where you removed the 1 nut. That nut holds the rear of the radio to a bracket that spans the inside of the console, if you pull too hard you risk breaking the plastic console base where that bracket bolts onto each side. You can give yourself a little wiggle room here if you also remove the 2 bolts that hold that bracket to the base. Look on each side of the console and you will see a bolt head close to the top edge, 3/8" socket as I recall. Remove both of those bolts and the bracket will be free of the base. Be careful here though because once you take both those bolts out there will be nothing holding the weight of the radio up and it will want to fall, which could also cause more damage. The radio will stay attached to the face plate all this time unless you want to remove it separately. To do this pull the radio knobs off and remove the nuts that hold the radio to the face plate. Then they will come out separately. Do not try to just remove the front of the radio and leave the back attached. This will leave all the weight on that rear bracket when you remove the face plate and that will break the console base plastic. Once you have the face plate and radio part ways out you will need to deal with the wiring. If it is the factory radio it will be a simple unplug, if it is an aftermarket radio hard to say what you will find. Or if you do remove the radio from the face plate you should have enough wiring to just let the radio lay without undoing any wiring. Now that the face plate is removed the sliding door will slide right off the bottom of the tracks. Install the new door and reinstall the console face. Job done. It's easier than it sounds. Good luck, Randy Goodling
