well i have the SE and i dont have sync or the 6 disc, but i just found on ebay the whole unit for about 60 bucks. would i be able to just swap the headunit out or would the connections be different? It would be great to go from a single to a 6 disc i dont really need alot of power the stock sounds fine to me ! lol
any help would be great

I don't think it would be too much of a difference. I have a SE that is basically all stock except I have a 6disk changer in mine and made the dealership I bought it from give me the all weather floor rugs, haha.

The stock head unit is just a gray steel box mounted behind the center stack face plate. You should be able to take the old unit out and stick the new one in, plug in the wires and be good to go.

I'll have to look for the thread on changing out the head unit. I have replaced mine with a DD in dash dvd player and it only took about 1hr to do. There are 2 bolts at the top, you have to pull out the vents and there right there. Then you have to pull the plastic from both sides of the center stack, not all the way as you only have to get enough room to pull the bolts. There are 2 more at the bottom, you have to pull the top of the center console out to get to them.
Open your center console storage compartment, using a small flathead screw driver lift up on the silver plastic of the center console, till it pops loose, Make sure your hand brake is as far up as you can get it, and take the boot off of it and your shifter if needed. Again you dont need a lot of room just enough to get to the screws.
And the top Display will work just fine.

uh it is a sync head unit it wont work aside from the fact I think some work needs to be down with the BCM to get it to work right.

the only thing i wanted to change out was the cd player , not the bottom sync port or anything just the cd player, so since it has sync your saying it wont work ?
i just want the 6 disc feature lol

well i contacted ford and the tech said they couldn't tell me over the phone . idk why he just said there not allowed to do it , so if anyone has done it on here id appreciate it if ya could help That's what all Ford dealers say! what they mean is bring your car into the shop and for $300.00 we will change that out for you. You just have to learn dealership language and do the proper translation
