    You realy should take this to either a dedicated forum for car stereos or a Ford-specific forum for a quicker response.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Some of the Ford radios are a pain to remove. No obvious screws or connectors.

    This may help:

    looks almost like youd have to pull the dash apart to get to it

    great antitheft huh?

    Eh, it's a Ford and it probably pops right apart and the radio's probably held in by 3-4 7mm screws.

    you have to remove the main center panel, remove the 4 switched to the left and there are 2 screws, open glove box and are 1 or 2 there, 2 to bottom of panel going upwards( need stubby screwdriver) remove lower dash on drivers side,( 3 screws alone bottom, 2 inside cubby hole amd then clip in corner)this allows access to screws on side of the panel, then look for heater cables connection on right side of heater box( may need to remover panel to get good access, its only 2 screws) then the whole panel lifts off. radio is held in by 4 screws, and then it just pulls out.....

    sounds complicated but if you look and take your time its simple enough, takes about 10 mins!
