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.
