It requires a special size that comes as a socket type from the parts store. I believe is is a TORX 45. But, usually you can fit and allen wrench into the torx hole to remove them. I have used 5/16",3/8",8mm and 9mm allens to do the job on various vehicles and it worked out great.
Hope that helps!...Mike
No, it doesn't. The radio needs to have CD^ on the 1 button to accept an adapter (instead of the factory 5 disc changer). The adapter is made by a few different companies (search on google), and you'll need to pull the radio to install it. My guess is that a stereo shop can install one for you for around $100.
I have a 2003 Dodge Durango R/T with the same radio, and will be looking to do that soon. There are a few aux input jacks that can be installed in the dash for convenience, at a small extra cost.
i have a 2002 ford escape and i bought a double din radio and it did not fit and found out it is actually a din and 3/4 with out serious mods (cutting a bigger hole in dash) double din wont fit i bought a single din stereo and a din a 3/4 dash kit works fine
The whole front plastic cover over the stereo and heater controls is screwed in with two screws at the bottom of the cover, just above the cupholders. Take out those two screws and then pop off the cover, which is held in place by clips up the sides and at the top. There are four bolt/screws that hold the radio/cassette/cd (whichever you have) in place. Unscrew them and replace the stereo. Plugs SHOULD fit, and if they do just replug it and you're good to go. If the plugs DON'T match up, get a wiring harness from Best Buy or Walmart.
But be warned! Just because the stereos look VERY similar and fit very nicely into the other spot in the dash, they may NOT have matching wiring plugs. I just put a 2003 Neon CD player into my 2002 Caravan, and the harnesses didn't match up and neither did the antenna.
I has this problem after i had recently changed out the stereo. Chech to see if the illumination wire that runs to the stereo is hooked up correctly. If you have an aftermarket stereo you may need to ground it to the body of the car.
I believe that the fuse is located in the engine compartment but check your car manual to find the exact location.
