How can I remove the radio CD from dash of 2004 F-150?

I have a Ford F-150 with a 6 CD radio. I have a CD somewhere in there between 1 & 2 and if I can get the radio out of the dash, perhaps I can retrieve the CD. How do I remove the radio?

Look carefully at the plastic frame that goes around the stereo. Figure out if it's one piece or two pieces etc... You are going to have to remove the trim around the stereo and then you will have access to the screws that hold the stereo in place. Don't force the trim, it may be held with a screw that you don't see right away. Pull the stereo carefully because there are wires plugged into the back along with the stereo antenna. You don't want the antenna wire to fall down behind the dash, it can be difficult to retrieve. Just remember where all the screws came from. Take a digital picture before you start if you have one available to you.

How do I replace radio


Ford radios need a special tool to unlock the radio from the dash. It's part of it's anti theft device so even if you take out all the screws that hold it in.... it won't come out of the dash.

I need the pin code for the radio cd on C-MAX


Hi,


Unfortunately you need the serial number of the radio in order to unlock it. You must remove the radio from the dash and you will find the serial on a sticker on the case. There is no other way round it as the serial of the car is not relevant with these Ford radios unlike some other manufacturers.

For European Ford radios the serial begins with a letter then 6 numbers e,g M123456.

It is this number you must find in order to have the code processed. The radio can be removed from the dash with special tools which you can obtain from the likes of Halfords for around £5. Halfords staff will usually be happy to assist if you need them to pull the unit out for you.

This diagram illustrates the radio removal process for the Ford Focus.

There is no other way to decode the radio. Even Ford themselves need the serial of the radio to retrieve the code but will charge £20 to £35 to provide this.

One alternative is to use this site which does the codes for £3.50. I have used it a number of times for these Ford radios and they are very reliable and cheap compared to Ford.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.
