I have an OEM radio that I want to replace. The front cover panel has 4 very tiny holes at the corners. I assume this is the mounting screws or tabs. I need some input on the removal process. The newer CD/FM radio is a Sony that requires a new harness but it says that for my model does not need a new mounting assembly kit. Is there anyone who has input for this?
Actually, you probably want the coat hanger wire loops (or the similarly shaped tool), you need to be able to work them a little bit to get the radio to release and nails would require too many hands moving stuff all at once
get urself some DIN tools from crutchfield. I have a 93 that i just replaced the head unit in. push them in firmly and yank the s.o.b. out. it took mine some convincing to come out but i finally got it.
93 f150, 5.0, 4x4, dual cherrybomb exhuast, high flow cat, KC daylighters, sony head unit, kenwood amp, 2 sony speakers and 2 pioneers
Wow man, that was a great question, it really helped with mine. I have had tghe same problem and now I know You guys are the greatest...I am in love...now its a love hate...I am missing my glove box(beceause of an tempremental 9 year old I drive around) and I can see two clips that hold the stereo in. When you insert said long and pointy it SHOULD push the clips in, which allows you to pull it out. When I push the coat hanger in, it pushes the clips out making it harder to pull out....I need a tool anyone mind telling me where I can buy one(wally does not have one and no one I know drivres a ford that would have it)
Would a motorize face plate(that pops out and slides down specifially a dual XD7500N) work with my pick-up. I noticed that it has the XLT trim and the OEM HU there is a a problem with space. I cant realyl explain it, but the radio sits in the pocket and would a new HU stick out far enough to allow the face plate to drop down?
