RE: Replacing a door lock cylinder in a F-350?
You'll need a #20 torx driver to remove the w/crank if manual windows.. (outter crank cover 'snaps on' at the larger end) If power windows, 'pop' up the switch plate at the very front towards the mirror control switch, then slide it forward to release the rear tab and disconnect the switches, also, there will be a panel bolt there to remove.. Same thing if a manual set up, only pull up the front arm/cover to access the panel bolt.. Remove the mirror dress panel by pulling straight off.. Then, remove the red door panel reflector by inserting a small screw driver in the slot and 'gently' releasing the tab by prying to the side towards the center of the panel.. There's a panel mounting bolt behind it as well.. Then ONLY lift the door panel off.. Don't pull it away from the door as these panels have a series of 'legs' that drop into the door shell.. There are no spring clips, or plastic push in clips on these panels to reuse.. The moisture guard will need to be carefully pulled away to be able to get at some of the outer handle nuts.. One of the handle nuts is accessed behind the rubber plug on the outter most door shell/jam above the latch..
