Sync 3 swapped never mind the info ... but if anyone wants info I have it
I would like to do it but I changed my mind when they said you would have to install a new gps antenna and that the usb and video inputs in the arm reset would not work with the sync 3 is this true

Yes it is
You use a fukura gps style antenna 12.00 ebay
New usb hub 35.00 ebay
Hub adapter plate 12.00 tusca parts
Wiring adapter gen 1 4dtech
Sync 3 module from car-part - eBay
You can get lucky I got my unit for 45.00

So I am in process of doing the same thing on my '13 MKS. I cannot figure out how to get dash apart. None of the online tutorials seem to work for a 2013+ MKS. Can anyone give me a heads up where to start on this?

Use a plastic removal tool and take off the wood trim parts (the long piece above the glove box and the small one above the push start button). Remove the sides of the center console with a plastic removal tool ( these don’t have to come all the way off just from the foot well to the seat). Remove the shifter cover (open glove box and put shifter in neutral pull up clips and unplug the 2 electrical plugs). Remove the 7mm screws holding the passenger airbag cover ( open the glove box and slip the panel out of behind the glove box this is a tight fit but it will come off)
Remove the panel under the steering wheel (let this hang down). Remove the drivers side cover ( this is clipped on by the custer and 2 screws) Remove the heater controls (4 screws). Remove the screen bezel and heater vents (2 screws) Now you are at your screen. You must reuse your brackets form your old sync 2 unit if you acquired a sync 3 from a mks skip this step. Reverse the process to reassemble. When you get sync 3 up and running you MUST program it with forscan etc. to have all your features work. Any more info I will be glad to help.

1. Remove the wood trim (long piece and small piece)
2. Loosen side panels on center console (these don’t have to come all the way off just from foot well to seats)
3. Remove shifter cover (open glove box and shifter to neutral pull up the 6 clips 3 on each side unplug the 2 electrical connections)
4. Remove the screws on the passenger side air bag cover(open the glove box and remove the panel ** you can squeeze this panel out form behind the glove box inner panel**)
5. Remove the drivers side panel (you have to drop the lower panel under the steering wheel then screws pull panel straight out)
6. Remove the heater controls (screws and clips at the top unplug the electrical connection)
7. Remove the screen bezel/ heater vents (screws and clips)
Then you at your screen (screws and electrical connections)
** NOTE ** you must reprogram the sync 3 unit with forscan to work properly.
