    Try TNT !!! But seriously, Pop off the dash strip that runs accross the bottom of the airvents , take the torx screws outta the air vents and multifunction display , slide them outwards and get your hands behind the stereo and push it that way if you can , through the cage with a stubby screwdriver ( have the release keys in stereo by the way ) , they must be top class techies lol .

    I couldn't get mine out either. Had to remove heating vents and display then remove heater controls and get a grip from top and bottom and it still took me twenty minutes of messing around before it moved and I have the proper stereo pins to release the retaining clips at the sides!!!

    Must be the way the unit slides into its cage that makes it so tight.

    Whatever you do , do not under any circumstances be tempted to insert your finger in the tape slot to pull it out , trust me this only results in detatching the tape flap lol
