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. :)
