Question about 1983 Ford Fairmont
The CD Player has a CD stuck in it and keeps turning the radio on and then off and will not eject CD or Play , how can I get the CD player out of the Dash or remove the Disk ?
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.
