How do you remove the factory stereo deck for a 1997 ford explorer?
This is all there is to it: Remove the two bolts just under the
lip below the radio deck (just above the air conditioning
controls). Then slip your fingernails or a flathead screw driver
beneath the black encasing that shields the deck, air cond.
controls, and the two vents. Once you pull off the encasing, the
deck should come out with it. Take a flathead screw driver and undo
the two clips that are holding the deck (one on each side). The
deck should now slide out of the encasing through the front away
from the dashboard. Unplug the wires and there you go!
