there is four small holes at each corner of the radio, they sell a tool that you slid into them holes and it releases the locks that hold the radio into the dash. I have also made that tool out of a coat hanger, google ford radio removal tool to see a picture of one.
On some vehicles the hood latch can be released by working from underneath and using a coat hanger with a hook as a tool. It may be necessary to have someone push down on the hood while the coat hanger is being applied to relieve spring tension
There are 2 holes on each side of the face of the factory radio. Special U-shaped rods slide into the holes to unlock the clips and pull it out. You can buy them from a parts store for a few bucks or use a metal coat hanger and make them yourself (all they do is push straight in the holes). To install a (JVC) radio, you can buy an adapter plug from a car stereo shop or best-buy that connects to the factory harness.
You need a pair of U shaped unlocking tools. They are available at stereo installer stores, or even best buy, I fabricated a set out of a coat hanger! You pop the bezel off around the radio, and the release tools get inserted on the left and right sides of the radio deck
I'm not familiar with that exact model/year but for years ford has had the same setup. To remove the radio requires a special tool that you can purchase from an auto parts store for about $5. There should be a small hole in each corner of the radio, the tool slides into the holes and you'll hear a click letting you know it's in there correctly. Then you pull the tools outward and towards you at the same time and the radio will slide right out. Then it's a matter of unplugging a few connections on the back. To reinstall the radio slides right back in.
FYI- The tools look like two pieces of coat hanger bent into a U.
Assuming it's a Ford radio, you'll see 4 small holes on the radio front panel, 2 on each side. A pair of "U" shaped tools (buy them at almost any parts store) go into these holes, then pry outward to release the radio. I've made the tools myself by bending some stiff wire (a coat hanger works).
