cd player? or do they know any good sites to go to that will help you
remove the cd player, that are free sites? i really need help with this. if
anybody could help i would be sooooo happy
YO! Just a suggestion if your going to do it yourself.... you need to goto
an car audio shop or i believe (napa) auto parts stores carry the adapter
( specific to your focus ) that connects to the plug you pull out of your stock cd player to your aftermaket stereo!, its nice and neat..w/no splicing its about a 15 to 30 bucks... and if you dont you'll have wierd electrical issues that will have little or nothing to do with your audio system!!!....trust me! =) good luck
Using an adapter may make the job easier, but is not necessarily better.
Anyone who is remotely competent with wiring can do a fine job of splicing
into the harness and have absolutely no "wierd electrical issues".
More to the point, he asked for help on the removal, not your opinion on the wiring. I don't have an answer for him, but then neither do you. Maybe I'll have my son the stereo install god tell me how and I'll share the info.
thats an ez one
u need a ford radio puller
2 u like thing that u stick in each side. 2 holes on each side
stick in push a part <-----> then hold that spot as u pull
( it may be push in not out ---> <--- and pull
i used on my f150 i got then at wallmart or u can auto zone or any stero shop
No factory Puller needed, Just use an old wire hanger, 2 pieces bent into "U " shapes... push it in , push apart <-------> and then pull out at that position, even the reverse might work also ----><----- then pull out... try it,,, and its free best of all... harness you can figure out by the other members inputs.
just go to a auto parts store get a DIN removal tool 3 or 4 bucks. they are already formed in the u shape mentioned above but you dont have to fight with an unwilling hanger............they are so inexpensive and available wal marts even have them...............all newer ford radios use this........just stick the tools in the holes squeeze them towards the center of the radio and pull.......radio slides right out
