Get a coat hanger and cut the bent ends off. Bend these into a U shape and insert these into the holes to pull the radio out. The Ford radio tool costs less than five dollars, but I'm all for saving money.

How do i remove the standard stereo from my 1996 for falcon xr6?

i believe that the radio has 4 small holes spaced 1.5" on the vertical and 4-5' apart on the horizontal on the face of the unit. forming a rectangle if you connect the dots. there is a tool you can buy that is shaped like a "U" small round stock metal with points on the ends. they com in pairs, generally available at auto part stores. insert the tools into the vertically spaced holes and push the tools into the unlocking tabs. pull the radio out. there are instructions included.

Hi there im having difficulty removing my cassette player from my 51 plate ford focus ghia is there any tips or hints you may have? i have 4 holes, 2 at either side of the player and i have the rods to...

You can make tool to take it out. Get a hanger, and make two U shaped tools out that wire hanger. The U should be as such so that its ends will fit on the holes. The two U shaped tools are for each side. You push them into the holes to free up the loocking mechanism all at the same time then you can pull out the radio. GOOD LUCK!!

Trying to remove a factory stereo in my 2001 chevy silverado pickup

If this is the kind with 4 holes in i, then you need to get the removal tools or use 4 nails or long screwdrivers all at same time and pull out the stereo.
If you do not have the holes, then you may have the kind that requires tools to slide in sides between stereo and bracket to loosen the hold. A butterknife sometimes works for this..

94 crown vic radio uninstall

There is a Small Plastic Frame around the Stereo. Remove this Frame and there should be Slots on Both sides. These Staereos come with Long key looking Rods that go inside these Slots and then you can Pull the Stereo Right out. If you do not have these, Locate a Stereo shop in your area or Even Best Buy and have a Radio Installer Release the Deck for you or maybe you could even Purchase a Pair of these for a Couple of Bucks from them in case they release it and it accidentally Smaps back into Place. it happens!!!!

1998 Ford Escort Stereo Removal

there are two holes in either side of the face plate. There is a tool (shaped like a pair of elongated horseshoes) that you can use. But I have gotten them out without the tools by taking 4 small nails inserted in the holes and a slight outward pressure to compress the clips while pulling on them.
Once you get it out, you will see the mechanism and smile.

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).
