    thanks guru ,but your missing the main point of this removal of the unit ie,wotever you push in the holes be it coat hanger wire or 4 darts or indeed the right tool.if you do not push in! then push out sideways! it aint gonna release the unit,then one gets frustrated and damages the unit. so push in then push out then releases the unit, it will become clear as you will see how the locking brackets work on inspection of the unit.thank you anyway dully.

Demo here using the correct extractors

Alternatives are 2 pieces of bent , wire coathanger or 4 x small drills(use the blunt ends) or 4 x small Allen Keys or 4 x small screwdrivers or 4 x nails or even 4 x darts.

An assistant is useful to pull the radio out whilst you are releasing the 4 securing clips

Code for radio after battery replecament I own a 2003 X-Type SE 2,5L manual gear and my radio asks for a code. Could anyone please assist. Thank you


In order to find the code for this radio, you will need to remove the radio from the dash to find the serial number which will be stamped on the case or on a label attached to the case.

Post up the details including all numbers you find on the radio. Some of these radios can be decoded easily from the serial but others cannot dependant on the version you have in your X-Type.

We will be happy to look at it for you and advise from there.

Thanks for using Fixya.

The code for a fiesta zetec 2005 radio

The radio SERIAL NUMBER will be required for calculating a code

On some radios, pressing Buttons 6 and 1 or 6 and 2 (together) may display a Serial Number.

If not , then remove the radio from the dashboard.

Then post the radio make model plus all the letters numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped in the metal casing.

This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

My radio is out of code


First you need the serial number of the radio and you must take the radio out of the dash to find it on a label on the case. The Ford radio serial number is a letter followed by 6 numbers e.g. M123456

Once you have the serial number go here and you will be able to get your code for £3.50. I use them all the time as I repair radios and they will even text the code direct to your phone if you prefer.

Never had a failed code from them so can confidently recommend that site.
