Ford Radio CD Shaker 500 1000 repair kit

On my custom build S197 Ford Mustang GT/CS Redfire, the Ford Radio CD player a Shaker 500/1000 has 7 often used control buttons for SEEK x 2, TEXT/SCAN, AM/FM, CD, AUX and MUTE that are all fast wearing out, looking very scruffy! See repair kit for the Mustang 2005-2006-2007-2008-2009.  Find my YouTube video and watch all 5 minutes before you buy. If you carefully scrape back the buttons old black paint into tidy rectangles, you’ll make a neater job than I did!  My full length video on YouTube shows you how to do this, but as installations may be slightly different, you just will see how I did my Mustang.

The Ford Radio CD parts are hard to find so I have a £12.90 repair kit. repair kit a free spare sheet, so you get 2 attempts or a stock of spares. I will export to most countries for £2.50 or $3.50 postal cost to most countries.

Tips and Tricks

I’ve marked in yellow on the photo the area to clear of paint to get a backlight for SEEK. Use a mini paint scraper, which probably don’t exist so it will be a small chisel or a flat headed screwdriver, preferably not too worn for a neat job. Gently scrape the paint off in the area needed only, clean with CD cleaning fluid (Isopropanol 55% Water 45%). Then dry with hairdryer. Apply sticker by peeling the sticker backing off. If you ask me nicely I’ll even cut one of two of these stickers out for you, as it’s a bit fiddly to do, unless you have a steady hand.
