This happened to me. Get a real small Allen wrench, then you'll see two little doors at either end of the radio, open them with your fingerneail or a nail clipper (they're not fastened, and open right up. Unscrew the screws on either end with the Allen wrench, and the radio should pull right out.

Went down to the local car store and they said there is a specialised tool to remove these headunits, they click in the 2 holes either side and wuhla its out. I want to know how else can i do this. Can i just put in 4 small allan keys and wuhla or is it a little more complicated

There is supposed to be some special tool, you can buy it if you like for aroun $15, or your dealer cn pull the radio out too, they should do it for free. I used 2 different sized allen wrenches. It you have an allen wrench set then just keep trying them until one works. It really is not too big of a deal, just remember that you may not find one that fits perfectly for both sides. I believe the right side took a smaller one for me.

two holes on each side, that sounds like a factory Ford or a clarion headunit
