Just recently bought a new head unit to replace the Mach 460 one. However I'm a bit confused about how to remove the old one. Some say that it's a simple as fabricating a tool from a coat hanger, inserting the ends into the 4 holes arounf the unit, unlocking it and sliding it out. Others say the shifetr trim and ventaltion trim need to come off and 2 bolts need to be removed. Which is it?
depends on the radio if it has the 4 holes then you can do the coat hanger trick if it doesn't then you will have to remove the shifter trim wich just snaps off the vent/radio trim there are two screws that go in upside down under the front of the radio that you will have to remove then it will also snap off just lift the shifter trim becareful not to break the clips.
The guy at the ford dealer around here told me to get a jvc cd player because most of the new ones came out with the option to turn the amp inside the radio down so it wouldn't overide the factory Mach amps. It sounds better than the stock radio ever did JMO.
Thanks for the help. FInalyy got around to doing it this week end. It was a sanp to dp. lowflynn's write ups were on the money. The only thing that took longet than anticipated was wiring up the harness. But the techs from Crutchfield were very helpful..
