I remember Tom and Ray (Car Talk) saying that the Taurus is one of the hardest to replace. Dealers around here get about $1000 for the job. There must be shortcuts though because the local Radiator Hospital cut a deal for a friend's daughter for $350 and they had the job done quickly.

Instrument panel removal in a Taurus isn't really that hard. (Try a Chrysler mini van sometime). One thing I would suggest is to remove the front seats. It only takes a fwe minutes and gives you lots more room to work. Be careful of the shift indicator cable. Many folks overlook the indicator and only remember it when they hear it snap while removing the column.
