Removing the radioThe 1998 Contour radio requires nothing more than the standard Ford DIN tools - about $4-5 and available at places even like Walmart, and of course auto parts stores.

Using the tools - Insert one of the tools into each pair of holes on the face of the radio - you'll feel a bit of a click when the tool hits the right spot. Push outwards on the top of the tools while pulling the radio out from the dash.

Once you've done this a time or 2, it'll take 30 seconds to pop any Ford radio out.

Disconnect the wiring harnesses and antenna.

I agree with the recommendation for Crutchfield.com! I've been a very very happy repeat customer of theirs for years. They make it simple, and have outstanding service, prices, products, support information - you name it, they do it right. :)

Can anyone provide a stereo wiring diagram for a 2001 golf gti?

If you are trying to fit a normal stereo in the car instead of the factory fit, just cut the power antenna cable on the stereo harness not the car cables, I believe its normally blue, and swap the yellow and reds around so red goes to yellow and yellow goes to red then your alarm will work properley. If that's not what you wanted then I wasted my time lol
