    I've never removed a stereo from a Fiesta but normally you need a special tool to stick in two small holes on the front of the stereo. This then unlocks it so you can slide it out. A metal coat hanger should work instead. Its what I used on a Corsa. Fitting is sometimes free when you buy a new stereo so that might be eaiser.

    the hayes manual should tell you, if not.....it may be key coded which i think so most likely with and M reg. one you can get the front off, you ahve to have a special little key to get the rest out if i remember....but it's easier to take it to the car radio shop and get them to take it out for you....

    gah... to remove a stereo all you need are the Stereo pins

    To lil holes/slots on each side of the stereo (might have to move the face/front if it's a removeavble secirity one) and slit to stero pins which will help remove it,

    Unless if your talking about the built in ones like in the corsa's I'm not sure,

    check the car manual or with a eletronics garadge, I could ask my sis bf he use to fit stereo's

    A coat hanger might work if there thin pins but some are flat like pin shapes,

    To fit a radio it's a peace of piss, all new wires on stero's or cars are colour coded, can do it with eyes shut, or manual will tell you how to do it,
