I have seen an installation kit to mount the stereo under the dash. The only other way is to cut and fabricate.

What was the performance ford ranchero 1978 ?


You should be able to find a Websearch for this. In 1978, Ford had an LTD II which seems to be the platform which was converted for the truck version called a Ranchero. The unit had a 302 and a 351 as options but I can not tell you if the 351 was a Cleveland or Windsor design. I believe at some point there was a GT version that may have shown up in the Ranchero. Usually body tape, different wheels, an emblem, and maybe different axle ratio.

How to I remove a cd that is stuck in the player of my 2006 Ford Focus?


Generally, you will need to remove the radio/CD player from the instrument panel. Once you have it out, you can remove the sheet metal cover on the top of the unit. With the top off, you can get your CD out.

You will need to have a professional look at your car and most likely - sadly - you will need to do major repair to the internal parts of your transmission. The car is old so you might be better off going for a whole new car.

Cd player removal


At the auto parts store, you can find a radio removal tool. It consists of two U-shaped metal bars. The intent is to insert the metal bars into the four holes on the front of the radio. When you pry the bars out, they release the clips that hold the radio in. I have heard of this proceedure being done with a coat hanger, but I have not tried it myself.
