The first thing you need to do is remove the outer panel of the dashboard that surrounds the radio. This varies from year to year, but you'll find that there are some lag screws around the bottom panel. You may need to pop off some plastic trim to get at these screws. Once you've got the panel off, you need to pop out the radio. This can be done with the Ford radio removal tool (which costs money) or with a DIY device made by cutting a wire coat hanger and shaping two "U" type tools (which is free). Slide them in the holes (2 on each side) and put slight outside pressure on the tools and the factory radio will slide right out. Disconnect the wiring assembly and the antenna cable, and you have a clean slot, ready for your next head unit assembly. The radio removal tool may also come with some new stereos or installation kits specific to Ford Vans.

There is a special tool just for Ford Factory Stereo removal. It is a little "U" shaped device that goes into the holes in the face of the unit. It actually takes two of the tools, (You will see 4 holes on the face plate). Go to any after market car stereo website and you can see what I'm talking about. (crutchfield.com is a good one) Hope this helps.
You must buy a Ford Factory Stereo Removal Tool. then pull the radio forward and unplug the wiring in the back.
No you don't have to remove the dash, there are four little holes on the face of the factory stereo which require a removal tool this tool can be purchased at the Ford dealer for a resonable price, after you insert the tools (one on each side) than you will be able to pull the stereo out.

I am looking for a wiring diagram of a direction signal or flasher for a 1992 E150 Ford Van.
If you pull the stereo and follow a big group of wires that run directly behind the stereo on the trans hump, you will find it. It is just forward and below the stereo. Not sure of the easy way to get to it as mine was already bypassed.
