You will have to remove the trim around the radio, could be easy, and then again it might not. Will be able to unbolt the radio after you remove the trim. Should not require any more than a couple screwdivers and a good range of metric sockets

SOURCE: i need my stereo unlock code for my Jag how do I

I had the same problem! All you do is call your closest Jaguar dealer and give them the serial # that is under the radio(so you have to remove the radio) they did it over the phone for me and they will give you the code, it's usually gonna be a 1- 6 combo cause thats the numbers for programming if you notice.

SOURCE: how to replace trunk stabilus


you need to remove the mounts which hold the gas strut to the trunk.
Once these are off you can then press/or pull the small black clip out to remove it from the strut.
But when you buy the new struts for the trunk they should come with the new mounts.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.

How do you remove the stereo from a 1998 ford taurus

A special tool is not needed. You can cut 2 pieces of coat hanger and bend them into a U and they work the same as the special tool

How do i remove the factory stereo surround without breaking it - 2006 model accent?

All new cars are alike and use snaps and clips to hold everything together. Most likly you can remove the trim around the in dash radio unit with a thin metal tool. They have special tools at the car dealer for this. I know with the older model hyundai's there are two clips at the bottom of the front panel where the cigarette lighter thing is. Once you do find a way to remove the front panel there most likly are screws holding the radio unit in. I myself am about to remove my radio unit but I am just gonna stop in to my dealer and see what tool to use.

  1. 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.)
  1. 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.


  1. Disconnect the electrical connectors and the radio antenna lead in cable (18812) from the radio chassis.

Stereo system

You will need to make a special tool. On each side of the radio is two holes, one on top of the other. Here is a picture.

You will need to use a coat hanger and cut it into two 6 in pieces. Bend each piece into a U shape as the picture shows. Insert the u-shaped tool into the holes. Use a small flat head screw driver and lightly pry the radio out. Your radio should be able to slide out at this point. I hope this is helpful.

Ford AU11 Fairmont CD Player / Radio

You need some special tools which slot in to the holes at the sides of the stereo, they release some clips and the unit slides out. Then you can take the cover off the unit and remove the jammed CD. These units are notorious for failure, especially the six disc stackers, and are probably not worth repairing, can be more expensive to repair than fitting a decent aftermarket cd player. Most audio installers or your local Ford dealer will have the tools to remove the unit, and if you just want the radio, you could remove the jammed cd and refit the stereo and just not use the cd player. You'll need to get the radio code from a Ford dealer to get the stereo going again if you disconnect and reconnect it. They may need the serial number off the unit to give that to you, and you may need to prove ownership of the vehicle.
