Question about 1993 Ford Festiva

Removing Car Stereo from ford Festiva (1998/9 model)

I can't work out how to remove the Factory fitted car stereo from my little Festiva. I have, however, successfully managed to completely remove the the face of the thing. In several bits. Broken beyond repair. I simply want to fit a lovely new little unit which might actually work. Can you help please?

Please note that it is a 1998/9 model, but this choice was not available on the drop-down list...

Yes it was not avail. because its a aspire after 94. and you can pick up a ford stereo removal tool at local parts store, that is if you have 2 holes on both sides of the radio

This sounds like as you have explained the removal of the factory fitted stereo is connected to the controls/ steering column by fitting the new stereo some electrical items remain unconnected. The volume control may be in circuit.
I have experienced this before on other models when fitting non factory extras.

I don't see an SE and not sure what you mean by "disconnect" but you can disconnect it electrically at the instrument panel fuse panel by removing the 5A RADIO fuse and the 10A ROOM fuse or by disconnecting the connectors on the rear of the radio

How can i replace the manufacture radio in my car and replace it with aftermarket car stereo


You best bet, because of a warranty, is to have a professional shop install your stereo. But if you are like all of us guru's here, you like to get your hands dirty.

First you need to remove the dash around your factory stereo. Be patient here and try not to break any of the dash. You may need to remove screws and pop loose plastic retainers located on the backside of the dash.

Wire the after market stereo to the harness located below by maching the colors provided. Thank the stereo companies for making this simple. Use crimp connectors or solder your connections, which ever best suits you. Tape up any remaining wires with eectrical to minimize the chance of a short.

Take the metal sleeve provided by the sereo you choose and install it into the install kit located below. Once you have removed the factory stereo, test fit the install kit and attach any tabs neccessary provided by the kit.

Now take the aftermarket stereo and place into the sleeve you installe din the install kit until it clicks into its locks. Now, the harness you wired up earlier, plug it into the factory harness and then into you stereo. Hook up the antenna, you may need to purchase a antenna adapter. Now before you install the stereo, do a test run to make sure everything is working. Once you are content that it is all working, install the new stereo and then reverse the steps in removing the dash panel and stereo.
