'97 XLT
hey guys i currently have a 97 XLT explorer with the casette/am/fm in dash radio and a 6 disk changer in the armrest...and a 2002 mercury(ford) cougar with the am/fm and 6 disk changer all in one unit....i recently took out the cd player from my cougar and replaced it with an aftermarket sony cd player....my cd changer in the explorer wont play my burnt cds so i figured i would put the cd player from the cougar into the explorer to play my cds and since its newer etc etc...i just need to know what wires will i need to get harnesses etc and will the cougar radio slide right into where the explorer radio slot is since they are both ford basically and both double din?
