2003 Allure TV Box Removal

I have an 03 Allure with what I'm sure is the original Sharp flat panel TV. I'd like to pull it, remove the box and install a Samsung LED in its place. Besides I'm tired of striking my head on that damn box that sits out from the windshield. Anyone out there figured out how the TV is attached and how to pull that large wooden box out?

If it is like the '02, which I think it is, remove the wood surround first. Then you can pull the TV out as it isn't bolted down. Then you can find the screws holding the box and remove that. You will have a hole in the ceiling that accesses the CB antenna connection that will have to be covered.

I agree with Don's steps. We have the 'Head Bumper' in our 04 Allure too. We did a temporary LED upgrade by removing the faceplate trim, the TV, added bracing on the sides, and a section of black cloth 5/8th ply towards the front of the cabinet. Bolted out LED Samsung 32" to this. We will be stopping early next year in Oregon, for some final cabinet tuning. Including the removal of 'The Head Bumper!'.

If you have not done so yet, take a look at some of the pictures from other owners mod's on the CC Yahoo User group - some very creative solutions.

One other tip, to add to Don's. You can simplify the removal of the TV by:
1) Remove faceplate trip of wood
2) Loosen a few of mounting blocks screws holding the Sharp in
3) Head North To Alasaka
4) When at Whitehorse, place a box with padding on next to the drivers seat on the floor
5) Head towards Destruction Bay
6) While at Destruction Bay, remove the box with the now gently resting Sharp, out of the way until you can properly dispose of it


On a real tip, add two HDMI feeds from the entertainment cabinet to the TV. This will allow feeding two sources, like a DVD, Direct/Dish box, etc.

And until you get rid of The Head Bumper, keep two sets of ice: 1) For the head; 2) For the evening happy hour!

Have fun, be safe,
Smitty

I don't see any screws to access that are holding the TV in place. The small hole at the top only accesses the off/on and volume. Obviously they installed it so there must be a way to remove it.

Look on the backside for a vent or on the side. From there you should be able to rech in and remove the bolts holding the TV in

Is there a panel on the windshield side at the lower section of the box. I thought on my inspire the attachment bolts were accessed from that panel.
