Hey, friends. It's Len here at 1A Auto. So today we're going to be working on our 1996 Dodge Ram 1500. I want to show you something fairly basic, removing the dash face plate. It'll be super easy. I can do it and you can do it too. As always, if you need any parts, you can check us out Thanks.

Okay, friends, so we're inside the vehicle. We have a clear view of our dash plate here. You can give it a little tug. The majority of it will break free just like that. Okay. But you'll notice as you get along to this side, it seems like it's kind of stuck in there, isn't it? Huh, it's not that big of a deal. Just grab this. Pull it out of here. You're going to notice you have a Phillips head and a Phillips head.

We'll remove those, one, two. Both of those are the same. Put those where we can't lose them. Pull this right out of here. There's going to be a couple more screws up here. These ones are a little bit harder to get to, but it can be done. Same as the others. There's one on this side, of course. Just kind of pull out this whole unit here, a little cup holder tray. Awesome. All right, so now we're just going to run our fingers along the side. Awesome. Pardon the noise. Out of the way. This should lift right up. Awesome. Just got a little bit of wiring here. Disconnect that one. So now we'll just take this off. Just grab this little tab and this little tab. Come on, baby. I lift one, the other one goes under. OH. Okay. And here's that. Awesome. Let's get this out of the way.

All right, so it's time to get our face plate on. I'm just going to go right over here. Just bring it down. We'll rest it there for a second. Come right over here. We'll connect this in. It's very basic. You just line it up, give it a squeeze. Locks right in. We've got this one. I'm going to go right like that. Slides in. Easy peasy. Take the face plate. Carefully line it up with where it belongs. It looks pretty great. Give it a loving block. Love it. Let's get a couple of screws in. We can move along.

All right, so let's get this in here. Slide it in. Theoretically should just go in there. Two mounting screws. All right. Some people call it an ashtray. It's more of a change tray for me, but everybody's got their thing. Awesome. All right, so we've got our cup holder. Got the little tab right here. That tab has to go under this right here. So as you slide this in, you just need to pay attention to the bottom. That looks pretty good. It looks as though the screw holes are lined up. That's great. Oops, they were lined up. Try it again. That one started. Do this one over here. Once they're started, let's snug them up. Awesome.
