First of all, hi from a newbie

Last week, I bought a Mondeo 2.0 diesel LX 13 on an 04 plate. It comes with the Ford 6000CD in it, but the CD player is problematic, causing CDs to jump on a regular basis.

I would like to replace it. I presume that if I want to keep the remote control function, I would need to replace with a Ford stereo. What’s the best way to go about this. Is it best to let a Ford dealer do it? I know nothing about changing stereos myself, so this is not an option.

If I were to get a different Ford unit, such as the 6000MP3, would that work with the remote control already in the car, or need a different one?

Thanks

I'm not sure about the remote. I would imagine it would work with any ford 6000 radio in the same way tv remotes work, e.g. Sky+

The radio itself is fairly straight forward to remove but you will need the correct set of radio pins. Once it's out it's just a matter of unpluging the (2?) plugs and the aerial. If your fitting a similar model the plugs will all be the same
