These Installation instructions work for all 99-04 Mustangs 

Step One


(Optional) Remove Drivers seat by unbolting the 4 15mm bolts.

Step 2

Remove gear knob, shifter bezel, center radio bezel

Step 3

Unclip all accessories (Fog lights, trac cont., rear defrost, cig lighter) 

Step 4 


Unbolt 8mm bolts holding the radio unit in place. (They are the two outer bolts on the aluminum tabs) 

Step 5


Gently remove the radio and unclip all radio harnesses and the antenna (Orange cord) 

Step 6 


Connect the black antenna cable to the radio; connect the orange antenna cable to the Hands free MP3 

Step 7 


(Optional) Using Zip Ties, hang the Hands Free MP3 Me from the radio mounting bracket 

Step 8A 


Start routing the cables where you want them to be accessed from. I later tucked the cord under the center console trim 

Step 8B 


Start routing the cables where you want them to be accessed from. 

Step 9 


Unwind the black and red cables, route the red cable to the fuse box under the driver’s side dashboard. You will need to bend the end a bit to get the fuse panel protector back on. 

Step 10 


Find a good ground point for the black wire. (I used this factory ground point on the right side of the Drivers Dash board, just past the OBD 2 jack.) 

Step 11

Reverse steps 5 through 1.

That’s it; enjoy your smart phone or other device in the car! Be sure to set your device to 3⁄4 max volume.
