You will need two Ford removal tools. You can get them at any auto parts store and even some walmarts. You can make some using a coat hanger cut into a U shape. (Just use the bottom corners.)

Stick each end of the U into the holes on each side of the radio. There is a clip in there and you can feel it disengage.

Press outwards, (away from each other), and slowly pull the radio out.

Once you get the edge of the face out you can grip it and pull it on out.

The tools work better as they are harder metal and grip the radios better.

They normally cost 3-5 bucks.

2000 chevy venture. How do I install a JVC stereo?

Check your local Walmart or Auto Parts store for the correct wiring kit to change your factory radio to a JVC...the kit is inexpensive and provides professional connections that are easy to trace...remove the face plate around your factory radio, and you will see 4 corner bolts that hold the radio in sure the antennae connections are the same size. Hope this helps.

2003 E250 Would like to replace original basic stereo radio (only two speakers in front doors at present) with JVC radio (that can connect to 4 speakers). Need radio removal directions and type of speaker...

There are 2 holes on each side of the face of the factory radio. Special U-shaped rods slide into the holes to unlock the clips and pull it out. You can buy them from a parts store for a few bucks or use a metal coat hanger and make them yourself (all they do is push straight in the holes). To install a (JVC) radio, you can buy an adapter plug from a car stereo shop or best-buy that connects to the factory harness.

    Want To Install New Stereo

    You need to remove the front face on the dashboard...either you can "feel" your way through this, or you can get a basic manual like haynes that contains instructions. Most radios have accessory packages available that consist of an adapter harness and face plate which will make the job go a bit easier.R&R instructiona are not complicated but too long to write out.
    Good luck!

    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.
