I just done a complete changeover - XT to XR - everything except for floor carpet, roof and top of dash.
Easy to do except for the glove box section - suggest a six pack and patience!!!!!
Make sure you have the proper tools and you will be OK.

You need a seat removal tool.. the rest are all fairly standard tools.

Is this all happening in a BA?

By 'Centre Console' do you mean you're replacing the ICC and BEM or are you just doing the front facia?

I'm curious to know. As the BEM is on the CAN bus and part of the keyfob authentication process, if you replace it your car won't start and you'll need to go to a Ford dealer to get it recoded.

I'm wary of changing the instrument cluster too, as I'd read somewhere that a permanent inclearable DTC is registered in the PCM to flag that it has been changed. I know lots of people have done it, so maybe they just live with it and ignore it, or have found a way around it.
