No,just the knobs. Mine are cleaned to death. Someone used a very strong cleaner or something on them. Have another set on the way.

To get to the silver faces on the AC indicators to replace them, you will need to remove the AC control unit. To do that, the lower dash will need to be taken off. You can download a guide here -

You will need to split the AC unit case to get to the internals, then remove the 3 towers from the circuit board by squeezing the retainers inward. Should be self explanatory once you see it, if not ask again once you get into it a little more.

Ok thanks for the info.I'll give it a go. I had the upper dash off when I put the Kenwood in. Bottom can't be much harder.

The bottom will be a snap if you have done the top.:)

Trust me I use those a lot. I'm gaining knowledge every day on this truck. Doesn't have a bunch of miles on it,but the others haven't taken the best of care of it.It's found a forever home now. I'm just fixing up the little things to suite me. Not big things,but man the parts,for good quality like new stuff,is a metric ass-ton of money. But I figure my wife and I saved for a lot of years.She was as tight as tree bark.Didn't want to spend much.It's for the kids. Well she passed on the 15th of June. The kids,all five of them,told me to enjoy myself and I'm trying.This little truck is my distraction.Still hurting,but if I don't wear the paint off of it,it gets me through the "lonelies".
So if I don't bug you all to tears,I'm asking what I don't know and can't find or figure out.Sorry for the long post.Just wanted to say thanks for being here guys and gals.Dave

Dave,
I understand your situation all too well. This wonderful group has become my family over the past 12 years and they have helped me get through the loss of my wife in 2006. Spend all the time you can with the kids and spend the rest with us.0:)

Dave these trucks and people here are a great distraction. The truck can give you hours of enjoyment either driving it, cleaning it or tinkering with it. The folks here are great people as well and can be a friend to talk to or a group to learn from. They are also always ready to lend a helping hand when it is needed.

Finally got cool enough today to tackle this project. A big thanks to Dicktaor for all the tutorials in the library.Piece of cake. Only took a couple of hours and now the dash looks like new. Like it should. Dragon,thanks for the parts and instructions you gave too.
