If I'm not mistaken, all you need is the radio removal tool and slide it out.

I'll say though, I have the tool and can't get the sucker to slide out! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

05's are different, you have to remove all the trim around the dash. I've read somewhere on here how to do it, from what I remember, the trim just pulls off. You need to tilt your steering wheel all the way down, if you have an auto. tranny, put it in first gear. Then carefully start at the lower left of the dash, and pull the trim straight out. Be careful, as the wiring for some of the idiot lights, is connected to the back of the trim. The little clips that hold the trim on can be tough, but they'll come off. The radio then unbolts. Try doing a search if you need more detailed directions.

pull the surrounding dash outward, tilt steering wheel in down position, shifter in down position, disconnect all connectors behind dash panel dont worry they only fit in the appropiate spots, I believe youll need a 7mm socket to remove the stereo hope this helps

I think the 05-06 models are different than previous years for radio removal - the DIN tool isn't required but you do have to remove the dash face. Have not done it personally but I hear it just snaps on and off.

Family Ride - After you snap the DIN tools into your radio (you should hear a snap), apply inword pressure to the tools and pull straight out.

The dash does just snap off. Like was previously said, tilt our wheel down and put tranny in first (auto). If you are careful like I was, you will not have to disconnect any of the plugs connected to the dash. You will still have enough room to remove the radio.

If you have average sized hands, you can take out the hook panel (2 screws) and then the cup holder (4 screws, 2 underneath) and reach up behind the radio and plug in the PIE adapter. You need to run a 12v connection to it as well so just tap into the wires for the cig lighter while you have access.

Since it was mentioned - where does one buy the PIE adapter? My local electronics stores have no idea. Does that allow the AUX button to be used with an IPod or Sat radio adapter?

for a 2005 F350 is not out yet at least the type that u can use the steering wheel controls and recharge the ipod at the same time,and yes u can use the aux button with the ipod, they told me in few weeks. 2005 F350 # PA11 FORD3
here where i got from the web page :
FORD began using a Controller Area Network (CAN) Bus for intercommunication between most every system in at least 5 vehicles, namely: 2004-Up Escape, Mustang, F150, Freestar, Monterey, 2005-Up F250, F350, 500, Montego, Freestyle, 2006 Explorer, Mountaineer.
Integrating aftermarket products into these vehicles has posed a challenge, however USASpec (among others) have answered the bell. Introducing the PA11-FORD3 iPod interface for Ford's CAN-BUS radios with "AUX" button. The PA11-FORD3 lets you connect, charge and control iPod products from the factory radio. No need to fumble with the iPod™ for any reason, you can stow your iPod in a non-visible location and enjoy hours of music because the PA11-FORD3 also charges the iPod's internal battery. No more Cassette Adapters, FM Transmitters, or Cigarette Lighter Chargers.
The PA11-FORD3 will not work with vehicles that have SIRIUS Tuners.
(MORE PRODUCT DETAIL FORTHCOMING)
