Remove TV

Hi: Need some help/guidance in removeing the front overhead TV. It is in a 2001 Dutch Star diesel. Looking at the oak framework its not real clear how to remove the framing and getting the TV out. I think for a replacement TV I will get a flat screen and one of those universal mounting devices.
Any helpfull comments on getting this unit out or on how to replace would be good.

Mine had 3 screws in from each side cabinet. There is a wing about 5" deep back on each side of the trim face, the screws are through the side of the cabinet into the wings.

Sled, On our 2001 DSDP there were two screws (#2 square drive) each on top and bottom that were apparent by pushing back the TV ever so slightly. They attach angle brackets into the top and base panel. Afer that the TV removal was very apparent. I built out from the inner steel side bracket to a flat mount for a "26"?) LED TV that flushed up the the framework. I mounted it up to the top and created a filler piece on the bootom where I inserted the Blue ray player and a LED clock. Sorry no pics as I am at work right now. --- Tom

You don't have to let the stock location dictate where you put the new TV. Sit in your favorite seats and look around. We found it is much more comfortable to have the TV at eye level, looking straight on.
