      Can anyone tell me how to pull the old radio out of a Sport Trac? It would help to have a diagram, but just step by step instructions would be great.

      Thanks!

      Two ways.

      1) Obtain radio removal tools and remove:



      2) Remove bezel (two bolts above the HVAC controls, pull trim with radio straight out), unclip harnesses, and then unclip radio.

      It's painful, you have to pull the grey shell open. It's just held in with some grey plastic holders.

      I think it may be as simple as pressing down then pulling out on the metal speaker grill, thus exposing the 4 screws that secure the speaker in place.
