how to remove the stereo? 2005 f250

I need to pull the stereo out of my 2005 ford f250 king ranch.

it's the single cd player with aux button.

anyone know how this is done? i keep finding things about the 4-holes..but this thing doesnt have 4 holes anywhere that i can see.

trying to hook up my ipod with PIE FRD04 i recently purchased that plugs into that CAN connector.

thanks.

I have an 04 f350, I have those 4 holes, if you do have the holes, you have to get the tool to pull it out with, it's very easy.
Both my partners have 05's and they have the holes.
Any auto parts carry that tool.

no holes :/ it's the king ranch edition, not sure if that makes a difference.
i can see the plastic around the radio wrapping under the fake-wood panelling that goes around the radio. so even if there were holes, you wouldnt be able to pull it out.

do you really have to take the dash apart to get to the radio on the 05's?

btw, I bought the little tool in advance thinking it had them...wal-mart sells them for $3.00

ok, fyi for those concerned who might be searching on this..found out at http://www.metraonline.com that you have to remove the front dash section in the 2005 f-series pickups in order to get to the stereo.

the dash snaps on in several places. apparently there is a tool for this that looks like a butter knife.

There used to be a post on here about 5-6 months ago about custom Sirius or XM install which had a link that gave perfect directions on how to remove the faceplate. Then behind the faceplate I believe it was just phillips screws holding it in.

I've got an 05 Lariat, the only tool you need are your hands...

First turn your key on and shift the shifter into 1 (if auto). I started at the driver's edge (to the left of the dash vent)of the dash facia and pulled, the entire dash facia pops off. Work your way around the perimeter popping the facia away from the dash. Once you've released it, you'll need to reach behind and disconnect the harnesses to the climate control, cig lighter, etc. Don't worry about getting them confused, they're all different plugs.

Once the harnesses are disconnected, just pull dash facia away and put up in a safe place (where you can't step on it). 4 bolts hold the radio in, unscrew those and voila.

Should take you 5 minnutes.

The FRD04-AUX works great and sounds awesome...no static. Let me know if you need one, I've got a spare I can get you for alot less than new.

Hope this helps,
Matt

thanks for the info!
I have it hooked up now and it works great..it's weird though because it thinks I have two aux devices, one shows as 'DVD/CD' the other shows as "PIE"..but who cares? heh

but the sound is way, way , way WAY better now..those FM modulators suck in that truck.

so here's what you need for those who want to use an iPOD in the 05's with the base single cd player with AUX button:

PIE FRD04-AUX
PIE UNi-POD

What's also nice, is I can add other peripherals with the FRD04-AUX, because it has a splitter built in for extra CAN-type devices.

btw, don't scratch or break your dash, It was almost $400.00 last time I checked.
local car wash scratched mine all to hell a few months back and I made them replace it.
