  • 2002 Ford Taurus Replacing Stock Radio

    Hey all,

    This will be my first installation involving audio on my 2002 Ford Taurus SE. I need a new faceplate and radio but I've been reading up for a few hours and see that there are many potential problems, and several solutions floating around.

    Basically, I'm looking for some input as to whether or not, from all my research, I will have what I need to get the job done.

    Here is the faceplate:

    Installation instructions for faceplate:


    Here is the radio:

    Here are some wiring details:

    Lastly, I need to buy some "U" shaped tools at walmart to get the stock faceplate off.

    Now I don't know about the radio because I'm not sure if I can just put in any aftermarket radio or not. Any input on this project would be greatly appreciated - including potential dangers. Thanks!

    This is a forum for installing PC's in your automobile rather than replacing the stock head unit with an aftermarket unit. You may get an answer but you probably won't. You may want to try one of the Ford forums or a place like cardomain.
