How to change radio?

I want to remove the stock radio from an EF Falcon and replace it with a CD/MP3 player. I have never done this before and have no idea where to begin, how do I remove the radio without causing any damage to it or the dashboard? I think fitting the CD player will be easy since I will see all the wires once I remove the radio but is there anything else I should know?

Thanks!

If you're really not sure at all mate then perhaps you would do better to seek the services of a professional audio install shop? :(

Try the FordMods site;

click this => Information on changing the sound system on EF/EL Falcons

Who needs a professional shop when you have forums?

Me again,

I'd also be making it as easy on myself as possible and picking up a Harness for an EF. It'll make fitting your aftermarket unit a snap and give you the option to reinstall the factory unit. Plug-in and Plug-out!

Made by Aerpro and available at most auto/audio type stores for $20~$30.

Cheers and best of luck.

PS> Interesting USERID you have
