Hey guys, I was taking apart LRB for a top-secret you-cant-know-what-im-doing type thing... (just kidding, I was changing the cabin air filter ) And I remembered that I messed up my RPM gauge needle when installing my white gauges a short time ago. "Today's the day I fix it.. and help other people!" I said to myself... So here are instructions on how to get G3 Headunit out, and G3 gauge cluster removal! (I think this only applies to G3's with a column shift) I will start out with an explination and then the picture will follow. Hope this helps you guys!




1996-1999 (Gen 3) Taurus/Sable radio headunit remval and Gauge cluster removal


Tools you will need: 8mm wrench, 7mm wrench, Ford DIN keys, small flat head screw driver, T10 Hex key

First, use the 8mm wrench to disconnect the battery (For safety reasons). Make sure no power is being used by the car (this means DOORS CLOSED, HAZARDS OFF, HEADLIGHTS AND PARKING LIGHTS OFF, Etc., etc.)



Now, feel free to open any and all doors for some fresh air as you are going to be working in here for a short while.



After this is done, the first obstacle we must tackle is the radio! You can't get the radio out unless you have the FORD DIN keys, or bent wire hanger (I find the DIN keys are much better. They are more sturdy; you can buy them at wal-mart, autozone, and just about any other store that sells automotive supplies for about $5 maximum). You will need to stick the keys in until you hear a click, or it won't go anymore. You then push the keys sideways (I.E - push to the left for the left key, and to the right for the right key) while pulling out towards you. The radio should slip out easily.

i got the din tool and the right side comes out no prob but the left side is stuck or sum thing the clips wont open i think there broke or sumthing any suggestions?

Take a really small flat head screwrdriver. Wrap it in a thin cloth and shimmy it in between the radio surround and the radio itself (keep the tool fully in the slot like the other side) and see if you can pop it out.

I believe the kit requires you to reuse the stock clips.
