    2000 Ford Taurus Dash Kit

    Today I pulled my dash kit out of my 2000 Ford Taurus, it's the rectangular shaped one with the 4 holes (2 on each side) that pulls out with a special key. Well I only had one of those keys so while I was taking it out one of the clips broke off. I am going to attempt to gorilla glue it, but I doubt that will hold...my last option was to get another one. BUT the f*****g things cost fifty bucks! I don't need the wiring harness and all I can find is the package deal for fifty and up! I REALLY don't want to have to buy this all over again, is there anywhere I can get just that part? Or maybe something else I could do to secure the deck?

    HEY! I've got a scosche kit for that car. What exactly broke? If it's the metal clip, you can get one at a junkyard... Otherwise I'll sell you mine lol

    Also a tip: don't try and use the tools to remove it.. Reach your arm behind the dash from under the steering wheel and disconnect the clips

    hell, i've just used nails to push in the four holes and release the radio. pretty easy.

    yea, the kits with integrated A/C controls are expensive.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    I hated the dash kit on my '04, such a pain compared to other kits I've done.
