you know they have ford keys, for that , so you dont jack things up with a screw driver. a local shop can help you with that.

how about you go to the **** walmart and buy some ford keys.


they cost like $2 and you pop em in the holes and push them outward towards each door. (left one push it toward driver door, right one push toward right door) and then pull.

then the stereo will pop right out. then you take the aftermarket headunit cage and push it into the hold and bend the tabs so it stays.

pop the harness on and you are all set.
