It is quite simple to remove your Ford radio. You will need a set of radio release keys (PC5-132). These are inexpensive and are around £3 - £5, you can obtain them from Amazon.
Once you have the radio release keys, push them into the 4 holes in each corner of the radio (See image), apply a little pressure and the radio will release from the dashboard. The radios label will be located on the radio's casing.
Serials begin V/M/BP/C7 for example V123456. The TravelPilot model slightly different. An example of this would be C73F0961 C 0536857. please see our Ford TravelPilot page for more information. See images below for reference.
