Ok maybe I am just missing something easy but how the HE!! do you remove the head unit from a Focus?:confused: I don't want to take the whole dash apart. The reason that I am asking is the wife got satellite radio for Christmas and I want to hook it up for her. Any Ideas or should I just tear the dash apart.:eek:hnoes::eek:hnoes:

Alright I did an internet search but nothing for the '06 or newer cars. I have an impression based on the white stuff that is falling from the sky that I won't be doing it for a few days so any ideas before I start would be appreciated.

Does it have the four little holes, (two on etherside) that you push the metal pins in to "release" the radio?
Nope I thought I was the big shot and walked out there with the removal tools only to find NO HOLES.

Ended up looking like an azz hat!

Yeah I can do that but I would rather get the answer on here and just walk out there and be the Hero. Not that she is anti this site but wow we could score major bonus points!

if it doesnt have the removal holes in the front then the plastic trim around it should come off. Then behind that you will see the mounting screws and you should be able to go from there. Just remember when you take off the plastic it will sound like its breaking, but it is the plastic rivets coming loose... oh, and take your time!! good luck!!

Yeah I think Shan would kill me if I killed her little car. She loves that almost as much as I love the stroker.
