Do you have the FORD removal tool? Looks like a big U with small points on each end, which slip into the holes on the front of the radio housing and release the clip catches that are mounted to the sides of the radio. Without the tool, you can try using a strong coat hanger, (not the wimpy white painted ones, but the stronger steel ones), cut and bend this into the U shape, push it into the holes, and push out slightly to each side to spread the clips you can't see inside the housing area. If this doesn't work, try your local AutoZone, Advance, or O'Reilley's, Pep-Boys, ect. and see if they have the tool and will "loan" it to you for the few minutes it takes to do this. Putting it back in is no problem, you just line the mounting slides up, and push it back in. You will hear the clips attach. It's a little difficult, even with the tool, sometimes you have to wiggle the tool a little to get these clips/catches to release. Only on a Ford. I suppose it helps to keep people from just ripping it out of the dash. But, it can be difficult at times, even with the FORD tool.

I cant get sound out of my speakers. i put in a new stereo and hooked it up

Did you use a wire harness specific to your vehicle year and model? Make sure you get the right harness, depending on what factory system came with the car(base or mach460 sound systems), If your speakers were working prior to replacing the radio, then there's a possibility that the harness may not be compatible. also, the car may be equipped with a factory amp(mach460 systems). Here's a link that may help you figure it out.

Power windows not working

Hey...I went through the same problem. It seems that if you have the stock mac stereo system and the fuses are not blown up, is more likely that your three amps do not work either. You have to rewire the car's stereo system from the car's stereo directly onto the speakers or an amp if you choose to include more sound. As for the power windows, as frustrating as it may seem, change the double throw double pole in each door. The connectors corrode from the inside. Try scraping off the copper metal and it will work for a few days and it will not work again... So just reorder a new from Ford. They run up to 40$ ok? Ben

2002 Ford Mustang convertible fuse box

go buy a cheap test light from a parts store they cost about ten bucks and you can test every single fuse quickly and easily by attaching the clip end to a bare metal surface in the car and touching the tip of the probe with the key on to either side of each fuse on the head of the fuse very quick and easy and you'll use it all the time please rate -jeff
