    It's a tight fit I used stereo removal tools to release the clips behind the grub screw holes & took 2 switch blanks out so I could get my fingers behind to pull it

    You need a set of Double DIN pullers, they have little hooks on the end of the rods to push the unlocking latch aside and then hook on to pull the unit out. Halfords sell them for a few quid.

    Do what i did, remove the blanking switiches from around the Radio so you can get behind it and help it forward. Worked for me yesterday.
