To remove the radio, you will need a special tool to go into the two holes on the left and right side of the radio panel. The tool could probably be made from a metal coat hanger, by cutting about a 6 inch piece and bending into a U shape. When you insert this tool it just releases the panel and allows you to pull it out. Unfortunately you cannot change out the radio if you have the standard AM/FM radio that came with my 98 Tracer. I had to order a kit from somewhere like This entire process is a pain in the butt because the A/C controls are on this same panel. So be prepared to remove LOTS of wires. The kit you buy will come with instructions on what you need to disconnect, and it will have a hole in it so you can replace the radio with any standard in-dash radio you can find anywhere (Best Buy, Circuit City, Crutchfield, etc.). It took me a while to get mine done and I would NEVER attempt to do it again, but it was totally worth getting a CD player in my car. Good luck!

How do you remove the radio in a 1997 tracer?

I own a '98 Tracer and would assume it is the same as a '97. There are two holes on either side of the radio. Many Ford radios have these holes. Two special "U" shaped tools need to be inserted into these holes and this will release the radio, (you should be able to find these tools at any stereo shop). Then just unplug the wiring harnesses (there are 6-7) and the temperature adjustment cable.
