MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR RADIO CODE BEFORE UNPLUGGING NOR REMOVING THE RADIO UNIT! This tutorial covers removal or change of the Ford Radio 6000CD RDS Facia. The tutorial covers the radio unit in a Ford Puma but will apply to all Ford models fitted with the 6000 unit. Most Ford Pumas are fitted with a silver fronted radio unit which may prove costly in replacing even if buying second hand as there are not many of them about. However other Radio 6000 units you are able to interchange the facias so you could purchase say a darker fronted radio unit and just change over the facia's. The tools required are the torx screwdrivers which are numbers T6 and T7 also you will need your radio removal clips. Don't bother using bits of strong wire as these may scratch the front of your radio.. Torx tools can be acquired at a good DIY store and the radio removal clips easily obtained from Ebay. Be aware that when removing the front the buttons are held in place so they do not drop out.. Just take care when the facia is removed that you do not drop it when the circuit board is removed as the buttons may jump out of their seatings. If you are not confident about performing this work than do not touch your unit. Its very simple providing care and time is taking in performing the steps in this tutorial. Have fun and save yourself a few quid.... Don't forget folks make sure you leave a comment..
