Hi Guys!

I have a 1994 Ford Mustang.
A few years back I had an Alpine head unit installed at a Circuit City I believe.

This month the cd cut out and stopped working and I'm tired to listening to the radio

So I went looking for a new head unit and I found one online for a nice price.

And I was just wondering with a head unit previously installed is it simply take out the head unit and basically replace the wires to the new head unit?

The new head unit is a Sony MEX-1GB.

Or will I need a new mounting kit and have to work with putting in new wires etc.

Thanks!

Yeah the new cd player will just slide in to the old slot

Is the Alpine the Sony is replacing a single-Din or a Double-DIN? (I'm not familiar with the dash of a '94 Mustang)

If both are single-DIN it should be a matter of sliding out the Alpine, splicing the Sony's wiring to a harness adapter, plugging it all in and sliding the Sony's mounting sleeve into the appropriate space and then shoving the HU into the sleeve - done!

Those mustangs are single din and the new deck should just slide in. You will have to wire the new deck but its straight forward.

Yeah they both look the same size.

So just take it out splice a few wires and slide the new one back in.

Thanks for the replies guys :)
