    You're gonna hate this, but your radio's in your trunk. The thing up front is just a remote control. Go get some DIN radio removal tools. They look like a piece of metal bent into a U shape. Push them into the holes on either side of the radio until you feel a slight click. Then push the tools toward the doors of the car and pull outward. The "radio" will slide out.

        Look here for an example of a ford radio removal tool. They're about halfway down the page. They're just heavy guage u-shaped wire.

        No need to buy them, I made my own from the two sides of a wire coat hanger. Push them through the holes, then outward, toward the doors, to disengage the metal clips holding the radio in and pull. Out comes the radio. Worked great on my Explorer.

        As always, YMMV.

          Dude, get the haynes manual for your car, it will tell you every thing you need to do. I think they have an installation kit for your round thing too.

            LOL.... i charge $80 for ford installs including the face. you will NEED the install kit. it should have a face plate, you'll need to move all the HVAC controls over. then run a wire harness from the dash to the drivers side rear of the car. the tuner "should" be mounted on the wheel well.

              oh ya DO NOT GO TO FORD for the removal tool. they charge 30-40 bucks for it. auto zone sells them for about 10.
