well its almost the same as the sp20. the bjs aircon switches are bolted on to the suround n i do not reccomend unscrewing it as it took me and a friend 20 min to put it back on. i reccomend driving your car to a auto electric store, and asking the guy in the fitting bay if you can borrow his ford cd player removal tool. its the easiest way as removing the stock unit is the hardest part of any install on any car. even if he asks for $20 or if you want offer a carton or 6pac of beer. just makes like hole lot easier. after that its a walk in the park. also if you want to buy the tool ull need 4 U shaped tools. they come in a pac of 2 so u need 2 pacs. after removing the little tabs ( 1cm x 10cm ) on the sides of the cd player insert the U tools in the holes. the middle hole takes 2 (im just childish) n push in n there u go its out
hope this helps mate

Use a credit card to pop off the little plastics on both ends, you will see where you need to insert the radio removal tool. You can also bend a metal coat hanger into shape, and use that if you don't have the tool.
