This may take some communication back and forth to get you what you are looking for.

Basically, the manual on these older vehicles is not that detailed on these components so we are left to basically figure it out.

So, I am attaching the dash view of the digital clock. I am not sure if this is what you need so maybe you can get a picture of what you are looking at and I will see what detail I can find.

I am also attaching different views of the dash so I am hoping you will see what you need.

If not, then we are going to need some pictures.

Thanks

Thank you for your help, as you can see by the photo that what is missing is the panel frame I guess, they gave me a part # F4SZ-19893-K that is the Ford number. I noticed that you highlighted #6 on the description page and not sure if that is the problem. It was not like that when I took it to the dealer, and I couldn't find that part anywhere. Maybe I will have to go to a radio installation shop and see if they can help. I am so angry I have taken good care of my car even though it is a 1994 I have had so many offers from people that want to buy it but not for sale. I thank you again and any further suggestions you may have will be greatly appreciated.

Okay. Sorry. #6 that was highlighted is not done by me. That was just the way the screen looked when I took a snapshot of it.

Maybe I was confused with the subject and mention of the clock.

However, take a look at this picture. Is the red what you are looking for?

You are correct, my question was about the clock, and I assumed that all of this cluster was together. I figured that when they took the clock out, they did it by removing the radio etc. More than likely wrong assumption. Yes, what you have outlined is what I am after and hopefully that's it. Going to give you your laugh for the day, took the car over to have the antenna replaced well I still don't have my antenna or motor as they had to remove it because the bolt was not coming off, said that the mechanic had the proper tool to remove it, not sure about that as it looks like they beat the hell out of it. So I am dealing with two separate issues. I have always had good service with this dealer, and I am hoping that they will make it right. This car is almost 28 years old but looks brand new. Thank you once again for your help and once again any suggestions you have is greatly appreciated.

Okay. That is what I thought.

Was there trim on this prior to taking it in for them to work on? I don't think there was any trim around the radio and HVAC unit.

I know there was a wood grain option but that would give it the same look as this does.

It is hard to see but here are the advertising beauty shots from a 1994 Thunderbird.

Also, the next is of someone showing off their new head unit but there is no trim around them either. The trim piece that you see around the radio in the second picture is part of the aftermarket radio.

If there was trim then I suspect that was an aftermarket addition.

Let me know if I am not understanding something. Thanks
