My protege5 did not come with the factory roof rack so I bought one off of ebay. The problem is that I can't mount it on my car because I do not have the ROOF RAILS. Does anyone know where I can find the rails? I have the plugs in the car to mount the rails. Thanks

I posted a while back that my brakes didn't work very well. I found out today that my tires/rims are too big for my little brakes. I'm an 18yr old male working full time. I live in Hamilton (1hr south from Toronto). I'm interested in buying larger brakes. But I don't have much money to spend. I want my brakes to react. But I also want them to last. I was thinking about all wheel disk brakes. I was told approx $2,000. Which I don't have atm to spend on brakes.
#1175 of 1221 Stereo removal.

On the stock head unit, there are two cover plates, one on each side of the faceplate. You have to remove these to expose the holes (two under each) for allowing the head unit removal tools (you can use Ford-compatible tools) to enter and disengage the snaps that hold in the head unit. You can just pry these off. They are held in place with light snaps. Be careful if you want to keep them as they are thin and fragile.

The ford tool costs a few bucks at autozone. It also removes the bin below the head unit if you want more space to work.
