    I have an '07 access cab and would like to remove the backrest panel below the window. As far as I can see there are no screws, screw covers, or clips. Any ideas on how it comes off?

    Good question. I will look at mine when I get a spare minute. It sounds like you might have to take the entrire panel off and fabricate a new one. :(

    Looks like a bunch of clips and claws on my copy of the manual. Can't get a copy from the pdf version that will post here.:confused:

    It looked to me as if you would have to take apart the entire panel. I think spp can illustrate this better because I didn't want to tear up the back of my 007. It looks like the entire thing comes off as one piece by pulling it up in sections.

    Changing the speakers and installing Dynamat in the doors. Figured that I might as well do the whole cab.

    It seems like I saw instruction on this somewhere... I will look around for it, and get back with you. If I remember correctly, the instruction were to dynomat the interior of an X-Runner...

    I have spent the better half of 4 hours looking for the article I mentioned, and I cannot find it. Sorry, but I have to get back to work. :rolleyes:

    I do know that there are NO SCREWS. The whole thing just pops off. Just be careful when removing it. You don't want to break any of the clips.

    Let's see if I can get this from my computer to this page?
    Sorry about the size but that's the best my computer skills will do in making this fit with the size restrictions of this site.
