    Default Bed storage box removal

    Bed tool box removal.

    Tools:
    14mm socket with 4-6" extension
    Flat head screwdriver
    Phillips screwdriver
    Needle nose pliers

    First remove fender liner. 1 phillips screw and 2 tabs. Use a flathead screwdriver and gently pop the tabs out. Unscrew the phillips screw and remove fender liner.

    The tabs:

    First Tab..



    Second tab....



    Tab removed...



    The screw:



    Removed:



    There are 2 forward bolts (14mm) and 4 aft bolts (14mm) holding the box to the bed.

    Remove the 2 forward bolts first.



    Remove the 4 aft bolts.



    There are 3 white retaining tabs holding the box to the bed now. 2 Tabs on top of the box and 1 tab on the aft side of the box. Using needle nose pliers pinch the tabs and push outward. Hold the box as it will drop if you dont. The box weighs around 15 lbs.

    The Tabs.







    To reinstall the box line up the white tabs with the holes and push in. Then install the 6 bolts loosely and check for proper alignment of box. You may want to have someone push on the box while you tighten the bolts down so the box will stay properly aligned.

    The holes for Tabs...
