If you are still having problems removing the stereo box from the dash, remove the two cap-head screws located above the AC controls/below the stereo control panel and give the top and bottom of the panel a gentle tug and you'll be able to remove the entire dash panel with the stereo enclosure installed. Retainer pins located behind the panel hold it in place to the dashboard assembly. My OEM 6-disc CD unit finally started to malfunction, indicating that all 6 slots are full when there are actually no slots filled. Can't load a CD nor can I convince it that the ghost CDs can be ejected. Its time for an aftermarket replacement/upgrade.

Once you push them in, you spread them apart from each other. This will push in a piece of metal that is preventing you from pulling it out. Once you get it out, you'll see what I'm talking about.

How to remove a disk player from a 1996 mustang GT


If it is a stock radio you can purchase a tool from an auto parts store, it's basically 2 U shaped wires with balls shaped on the ends you, slide these into the holes on both sides of your radios face plate. Push out slightly on the wires while you are pulling and the radio should slide right out. Be patient as it might take you a few tries. The tools were only a few bucks. I tried using some wire coat hangers but they didn't work as well as the tools I purchased.

I need to know how to remove the whole radio assembly in my 87 ford ranger the radio has never worked since I owned it. If you can send me a digram on how to remove it i would be extreemly grateful


All you need are the Ford radio removal pins. They can be bought at most large auto parts retailers. They look like a "U", and are slightly barbed at the ends. On your radio you will see 2 holes on either side. Just insert the tools until you hear a slight click, this releases the locks, and pull slightly outwards (towards the doors), then slide out, disconnect and replace.

How DO I Remove The Radio


You will need as key to remove the factory radio from almost any manufacture. It was originally designed as and anti theft but anyone can buy them so its just a headache now. Try the local autozone or advanced...they should have them fro around $10. Just tell them you need the key to remove a radio from a ford and they will set ya up. The package will come with 1 key...now it takes 2 to remove your radio (one inserted on each side then pull raido) but if ya wanna save $10 bucks from buying two with some luck you can put one in and release (unlock) that side then go to the other and do the same..a lil harder but saves $10....you choice. Best of luck to ya

Name of toll to release the fuel filter lines?


ford has several different sizes for full size, not sure about rangers though. They are called fuel line tools though. Did you blow air through the connecters to remove all dirt? How about removing the metal clips that are there as a saftey measure? Those clips looke like a weird J shape that helps prevent accidental disconection.

STEREO REMOVAL


Assuming it's a Ford radio, you'll see 4 small holes on the radio front panel, 2 on each side. A pair of "U" shaped tools (buy them at almost any parts store) go into these holes, then pry outward to release the radio. I've made the tools myself by bending some stiff wire (a coat hanger works).
