99 ford escort faceplate removal


Unregistered guest
Can anyone tell me how to remove the faceplate on the headunit from a 99 ford escort. There are two holes on each end of it and im trying to do it w/out the "magic tool" that i hear about

The two holes are meant to remove the whole stereo, the faceplate is not detachable. My best suggestion if you can't afford the $15 for the tools is to use coathangers. Another way to do it is to shove a flathead screwdriver in on each side of the head unit, push them outward, and pull it out.

I just but my tools at Walmart for $4. Now, I cant get my deck out far enough to get the cables off. Anyone know out to that? How can I get to the wires in a 1999 Escort?
