Jayco Class C with Ford E450 V10 engine. Other than unlocking the clips, what else is involved with removing the inside engine cover? I have undone the 4 clips but the cover is still locked in place. Is there something else I need to do to remove this cover?

As I recall from mine, the top has to pivot out from the dash and then the bottom lifts away once the top part is clear. It is a bit of a tight fit, and not the easiest thing to remove or get back in place (the latter doubly so for me as there are a few wires that want to droop down in the gasket area and need to be held out of the way).

Thanks for the responses. I will take another shot at it when I get a chance and see how it goes.

If it hasn't been off for a while you may have to give a really good pull on it esp. if any coffee or sugary beverages have been spilled

I got if off with a good bit of effort!! I had to remove one of the outside panels on the lower right side of the dash to get clearance to slide it out. It is heavier than I realized. Thanks again for the information.

I have a 2004 29" Gulfstream on a E450 chassis. It has the V-10 motor. I can't find the interior fuse block, lights AC, etc.

It isn't next to the steering wheel next to the brake pedal under the dash.

Can anyone help me locate it?

That's where my 2001 fuse panel is located. Did you take off the access cover?

Access panel? Is there an access panel in the "footwell". Do I need to look up under the dash to find it? Thank you so much for the help.

It might not look like a conventional cover but the fuse box does have tabs on the front that you can lift off the front part.

Squat down and use a flashlight , as you look at the brake pedal, its to the left of the pedal on the firewall.
