1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Stereo swap

Hi All,
Just wondering how hard is it and what do you need to put an aftermarket deck into the above mentioned beast. This car has the stock cassette deck.
Any possibilities of doin a swap for a factory CD player? Anybody?
Thanks in advance

Do you really want a factory CD player? I was able to find a nice Clarion CD head unit for about $150, real easy to install. If you want good sound q. go for Clarion or Alpine. You need a wiring harness some basic hand tools and a mounting kit. Your local car stereo shop should have all of these things.

a CD changer added to your system. The factory units in newer cars are far better than they used to be, and better than most after market units too. If you go after market all you need is an "install kit" and a converter plug that eliminates wiring woes. Very easy!

Just take your car to a local electronics dealer and have them install a new car stereo system for you or buy the stereo and instalation kit from them.
Another option is you can go to www.crutchfield.com and find the aftermarket stereo system that would fit perfectly in your car. They come with FREE mounting tools, wiring harness and instalation instructions. Crutchfield's instalation instructions make it a peice of cake to do it on your own.
