Stock Stereo Removal? 2013 Transit Connect XL

Recommended Posts

Ok, How do I remove this radio? I can only find a couple of slots down centered on the side of the radio. It seems that everyone else uses or recommend the mercedes tools to remove these but the slots for those are in the four corners on the outside edges of the buttons. I done have these slots.

If anyone can help, Thanks!

and the outside edges are VERY tight.

The cover that surrounds the radio snaps off... I recommend you purchase a set of ("Plastic") pry tools so you won't mar the dash. The clips that hold the cover on will resist your efforts with considerable force. There are 4 clips total, one in each corner. Start at either lower corner and from the bottom, release the lower clips first. Then from the sides, pry out the upper two corners. Take your time, use plastic pry tools, and it will come off. The radio is held by 4 metric hex screws, 7 mm if I remember correctly... Good luck!

Thanks! Yes it takes considerable force! I was afraid of breaking the plastic and wanted to make sure there wasn't something I was missing before I continued.
