SOURCE: 1999-2003 Ford Windstar radio removal procedure

I just removed my radio today from my 2003 windstar. i bought the "radio removal tool" from ford (8 bucks) but could have used a wire coat hanger. The trick is to insert the tool/hanger into the holes and push them to the outside like your spreading them. the radio comes loose , no tugging or prying.

SOURCE: Remove the radio in a ford windstar 2000

There is a ford radio removal tool. It looks like a pair of horse shoes most times. Or you can insert four 8 common D finish nails in the four holes (or 4 six D finish nails) -one in each hole until you feel it click. Be gentile. simultaneously push each side towards their respective front door and gently pull the radio out.

I need a picture or a diagram to replace the temperature contral in a Ford Windstar


If your talking about the blend door actuator there is a really good video on youtube, Take out the radio, remove the trim panel/temp controls, disconnect backup alarm/traction connector, and move the whole thing to the right side, that will give you access to the unit. Three bolthead screws are easy to get to although tight, an extension helps here. Good Luck

How do i take the radio out of my 98 xk8


Hi

1. Remove the black trim panel holding the cruise control and sport mode buttons from around the shifter. There are 4 clips holding the panel on: upper left, lower left upper right and lower right. Be careful, they break easily. Remove the wires from the buttons.
2. There are two brackets holding the wood panel down, one on each side of the shifter. Remove the two screws holding down each bracket. Be sure you note the orientation of the brackets - it will make reinstallation easier. Lift off the wood trim panel.
3. Under the wood trim you just removed, there are four bolts fastening the console to the car. Remove them.
4. Open the console lid. Remove the two screws fastening the latch strike plate. Again, make note of the positioning of the latch plate for reinstallation
5. Remove any other screws retaining the console compartment. Lift out the compartment liner. Close the console lid.
6. At the rear of the console is a trim cover. It is held by two tension clips. Just pull it off.
7. There are two bolts under the rear trim cover - remove them.
8. Remove the console.
9. Remove the screws holding the radio in the dashboard and pull the radio forward.
10. Remove the antenna wire and wiring harness connectors from the back of the radio.
11. Unbolt the ground wire from the back of the radio.

Reinstall in reverse order.

Need to remove radio from 2003 ford f150


Remove the center oval trim panel. I usually just grab in the HVAC vents and pull, but you might want to use a plastic trim tool to work your way around the center trim bezel.

Pro Fit International has some good directions with pictures ( obviously only use them for accessing the radio, no need to continue for the vehicle specific mount )

This should be your MY and make ( right click save as ):

Once the radio is exposed, you will see 2 sets of round holes on each side.
You can buy the tools, or just bend a wire coat hanger in the required shape to insert into the holes to release the radio.

These are usually called Ford DIN Radio Removal Tool ( or similar ) if you want to purchase the actual tools, but I have had good luck with the coat hanger DIY tool.

How to remove the dashboard of a 1999 acura tl


The easiest way to remove the radio from a 1997 Acura TL is from the front. Assuming you know your anti-theft radio code, disconnect the negative side of your battery. See the last paragraph if you have lost your anti-theft radio code.
Next, remove the plastic wood trim from the dashboard surrounding the radio. To do this open the glove box, reach up inside and push out on one of clips holding the wood trim, as it comes loose grasp the trim from the front and carefully pull the trim until each clip unsnaps from the dash. The attached Heater/AC control panel above the radio comes off with the wood trim, so just unclip the 2 wire harnesses from the back and set trim panel aside.
Next, using a phillips screw driver, remove the 4 screws holding the black plastic radio frame into the dash, then pull the radio forward to remove it. Disconnect the 2 wire harnesses and antenna cable from the back of the radio to complete the removal. If you are putting in a replacement radio, just loosen the two small bolts holding the radio on the back of the frame, and then slide the radio out of the frame.

Steady thumping every couple seconds in the venting system


On my 2000 Windstar, I had this same problem. I replaced the vent door motor and the problem went away. It is roughly $40 from O'Reilly. The motor is a white box located behind the radio. Remove the radio, then remove the plastic trim piece around the radio and climate control. From there, you will be able to remove 4 8mm screws from the white motor. Unplug the electrical connection and remove the motor. To put it back together, do the reverse of these steps using a new motor.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE RADIO FROM A 1995 GEO TRACKER????????


To remove the radio:
Remove the ashtray by raising the armrest cover and removing the two screws at the rear of the ashtray. Slide the ashtray back and then lift it out. Be careful of the two front tabs, as you don't want to break them.
Reach below the wood console, where the ashtray front tabs were inserted. Loosen and remove the two wing nuts.
With a small, long flat bladed screwdriver, pry out the leather shifter surround. The leather shifter surround has a center chrome retaining ring, the leather surround, and then finally a black plastic surround. The chrome retaining ring has 3-4 tabs which are locked in below the leather surround. It depends on the year of the Jaguar. Probably the 95 has three, but maybe four. They should be at the front and rear of the trim piece (2 front and 1 back, or 2 front and two back) but I've seen then on the sides. The point is, you have to be careful with the screwdriver and find the tabs. The screwdriver should be slid between the leather and the retainer. Pull upwards on the retainer gently, and as you loosen the tabs, it will come out.
Remove the leather surround. Once the chrome retainer has been removed, it should be easy to work it out of the console.
Loosen the black trim ring gently as it has tabs as well, but they are visible once the leather trim has been removed. Lift it upwards out of the wood trim and pull it to the side out of the way. You don't need to disconnect the wires, just lay the black trim to the side.
Lift the rear of the wood console trim and gently, gently slide it back and up. It will try to hang on the leather console, and can be difficult. Patience is important, as the walnut on the ski slope cracks easy (really easy).
Once the wood console trim (ski slope) is removed, you should have a row of screws up the side of the center control panel, where the radio and AC controls are. There are four to six on each side, depending on what Jaguar used at the time, as the 95 cars mechanically are somewhat of a blend of the XJ40 and the XJ300. Remove these screws, and note any spacers that were behind them. These spacers get lost quickly, and cause the ski slope to sit awkwardly on the console.
The radio will slide forwards once these screws are removed. Remove the radio harness and the antenna lead. As the books say, assembly is reverse of removal.
Good luck, and let me know if you have questions. If you are replacing the radio, let me know as I have the harness wiring codes and can help you with that as well.

Stereo installation


There are 2 types of wood trim on the s-class. One is a solid piece and the other is split in the middle. Remove the ac pushbutton panel, remove the shifter trim and remove the cigar lighter insert. If it is a solid panel, then you will unscrew two screws underneath where the ac panel was and I believe that with the ac panel out of the way you can reach in and pull the radio head out. If you need to remove more, then be very careful with the wood-very costly. If it is the split wood, look for a screw on the back of the cigar lighter wood trim(you've already removed the insert, right). You need a 1/4 in. ratchet with a screwdriver bit to access. You only need to loosen it up and slip it off. With the wood out of the way, look for two hidden screws on the inside front edge of the center console wood panel-right behind the wood cover you just removed. These will have to come out as well. Once they are out, pull up gently on the front of the rear wood panel(around the shifter) and slip out, There are likely two more screws underneath this panel. Take them out to remove upper wood trim.
