Help with front television removal

Ok, we have a 34fdds with the upgraded hdtv. It’s surrounded on the bottom with a really nice metal shroud that also holds some sort of large object that’s about the size of an old vhs player but it’s not. Anyway, for the life of me I can’t figure a good way to remove the tv without unbolting the entire thing and Hoping it doesn’t just all drop onto the dash.

Appreciate some advice if you have or done this before.

Please post a picture.

If this is a center mount between the driver and passenger, mine was on an articulating arm that pulled out. I was able to unbolt it by myself as it wasn't that heavy. Regardless it would help if you could share a picture.

I removed mine a couple of years ago so Iím going on what I kind of remember. Iím sure somebody else will jump in and help also.

As I recall I started with the bottom cover, the one with holes for venting. Once it was removed it opened up the back and gave a better view of what is going on inside. Once you get a couple of the panels out of the way itís pretty straightforward. I seem to remember taking that control box out first and everything became obvious.

I donít recall any major issues with the removal but the tv itself is a little awkward and it helps to have an extra set of hands for a couple of the steps.

I hope this helps a little

Here are pics of the unit and the metal lower surround. Iím sure itís just the screws on the bottom where it attaches to the cabs.

Thanks Terry, I was pretty sure it had to be fairly easy. Couldnít imagine the whole assembly being raised into place at the factory as one piece but you never know.

Removing HD Television

Private message me back, but I've taken mine out and replaced it with a HD LG TV that fit perfectly in the old space. I also added a big AV receiver and a Play Station.
You remove the center speaker first, then all the screws from the bottom metal cover and drop it down. The monitor unit (that looks like a computer) is bolted to the front wall (toward windshield) and the TV is bolted to a metal panel that is behind the TV. It's a little tough to get to, but the monitor unit should come out first, then the TV. I mounted our satellite receiver where the big monitor unit was and replaced the TV with a 36" LG that fit perfectly in the old opening. I had to make some small modifications to the metal brace behind the TV in order to accommodate the HDMI plug and power cord.
