Many Ford vehicles of the 1990s and the 2000s feature radios that are removed from the dash with the use of a "DIN tool,: (sometimes known as a Ford radio removal tool). These tools are simple pieces of U-shaped wire, the tips of which are inserted into a pair of holes on each side of the radio's faceplate. Although they are inexpensive and readily available, you may enjoy fabricating your own homemade tool.
Cut an eight-inch piece of wire from a metal coat hanger, using a pair of heavy wire cutters.
Bend the wire into the shape of U, with the legs of the U one and three-quarter inches apart. The tips of the U should be even with each other.
File the ends of the tips of the U into points with a file. The points do not have to be sharp: a relatively blunt tip is fine.
