Re: Radio reciever ....cant get it out
First remove the selector trim panel for the Auto tranny or gear shift and boot trim panel for a manual tranny. remove the cigarette lighter assembly and disconnect the connector. remove the 2 radio mounting screws. You need the insert two radio removal tools T87p-19061 or equivalent into the face plate holes until you feel the tension of the holding clips. If this is the first tome removing the radio, the flashing of the bezel facing has to be broke. This may require extra force. flex outward on both sides of the radio simutaneously and pull the radio out using the tools as handles. Then dissconnect the electrical connectors. Hope this helps.

You will need a Ford radio removal tool. These can be purchased at Wal-mart and your local auto store for about $5. The pack comes with 2 and you will both. These are U shaped and once these are inserted into the holes it will release "locks" to remove radio. There are other options to get it out but this is the best for someone new to this. God Luck
Have you removed the original connector from you original stereo? If you still have the original connector in place you can get a new connector from the Ford dealer that will plug into your existing wiring and into your new deck. Ford connections are unique to Ford and you need to adapt them for this application.
Take the car and deck to the dealer and tell them what you need. Everything just plugs in and your original amp and speakers in the car will work.
Having said that there was an adapter available at Wal Mart of all places that did work. You may want to check there.
If you have removed the original connector then you need a wiring diagram.

The amp is located under the rear passenger side window. You need to remove the plastic side wall to expose it if you need access there. You can trace the wiring if needed.
Under the front bottom edge of the rear seat are clips holding the seat in place. Open the clips and the seat lifts off. You can then get to the amp as needed.

SPECIAL SERVICE TOOL(S) REQUIRED
Radio Removing Tool
Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301).
Remove the instrument panel finish panel (044D70). Refer to Section 01-12 for the removal procedure.
Insert the Radio Removing Tool T87P-19061-A into the face plate holes until the tension of the tool locking into place can be felt. (There are tension clips that this tool pushes out of the way so the radio can pull out. Maybe you can insert 4 pins that will do the same thing.)
Flex outward on both sides of the radio chassis (18806) simultaneously and pull the radio chassis from the instrument panel (04320) using the tool as handles.
Disconnect the electrical connectors and the radio antenna lead in cable (18812) from the radio chassis.
Did you read your owners manual? Not sure what kind of radio it has, but most of the ford radios from this era work like this: Hold down the clock button then ussually if you push seek down it will advance the hours, and if you push seek up it will advance the minutes.
