Pull the front surround off from around the unit, it may be affixed by screws, so be careful not to break the case, then you shall see some screws holding the unit in from around the side of the deck. Unscrew those and you're away

You will have to remove the entire dash panel, including the instrument cluster, radio, and heater controls. Also need to drop the steering wheel. Drain the cooling system. Remove trim panels under and to the sides of the dash first. I would recommend using a factory shop manual. It is going to take a while. If your Toronado also has a console, that will have to come out as well. Probably want to take out the passenger's seat to give your self some room.
it is not a factory installation. and can you tell me if it is a removalable face.? generally there are 2 metal strips that slide along the face plate that releases the deck from the housing then you can have access to the screws that hold the housing.(this only applies to removable face type decks)
I take it the alarm is a after market one. look under the dash on the drivers side next to steering colunm there should be some wires there with a fuse in 1 or 2 . you need to pull the fuses. sending you a picture to give you a basic idea.
The factory tire iron is generally lacking (gives you little leverage) so loosing it is really a good thing. You can get an "X" bar at any auto supply store. Just use the end that fits your lug nuts. (bar has four ends). As for the locks, most common ones are a round lug with a pattern on the end that matches the pattern in the "key lug" that should be in the trunk, glove box or console. Use the key lug in the end of the round nut on the wheel and the "x" bar on the end of the key. If you can't find the key, bring it to a good shop. Most experienced techs have tricks for removing them without causing damage. The very last resort on those is cutting them. That can damage the wheel or break a wheel stud so that method should only be used when all other options have been used first.
You will have to perform a factory defaults reset of your router.
This will mean that you will have to set up the router from scratch following the user manual directions.
There are a number of version of the DIR-615, so I cannot give you specifics on where to find the user manual if you need it, but I can provide to you the general support page for the DIR-615 and you can then find the specific manual that you need based on version under "Support Resources" tab.
Have your radio code before you pull it out with the right radio tool. This pull would involve removing this parts.
Driver side panel
Center top dash board
Defrost switch carrier
Center lower half of dash
So I'd suggest go to your local public library and look for your car manual. It would be either Chiltons or Clymers manual, it's not as precise a Bentley VW Official factory repair manual. Yes it really involves taking all those parts out just to get to the rotary switch.
It's a good idea to disconnect the battery to prevent any electrical issues during the job. You could drain some of the coolant to try & minimize the amount of spillage but unless you pump the fluid out of the hoses, you will spill some.
Remove the hoses from the heater core on the firewall side. There are several things you will need to remove under the dash & around the glove box area that you will see need to be removed (electrical & any padding/insulation/trim that obstructs the core cover, but you can eventually remove the heater core from the dash without actually removing the entire dash or a/c & heater assembly. Once you get access to the front of the heater assembly, remove the screws that hold on the heater core cover, remove the cover and you'll see the end of the heater core which can be removed & replaced. Generally, a gentle nudge from the firewall side where you removed the hoses will help. Then reassemble & hopefully you'll have heat & no leak. I suggest that in cold weather, you dip the hose ends into hot water prior to attempting to put them over the new heater core ends, this will only aid in the installation & prevent damaging the ends.
You may want to look at the new part before you start to identify just how it fits in the heater unit, based on the hoses from the firewall side that you can see & it will give you a good idea of how this all works. good luck
Ford factory radios are designed to be removed with a set of radio keys. They look like a set of metal U's. They slide into the four holes on either side of the radios face and push the metal tabs on the inside out of the way allowing the radio to slide out. It could be that you have a burned out fuse, check your fuse box and the single fuse on the back of the radio. It can be replaced with any aftermarket radio in production, if you use an adapter for the factory harness,(or hard wire it) And what's known as a "DIN" reducer. (A plastic faceplate that makes the hole in the dash the same size as a normal radio)
