Most radios are extracted with a special tool. If you have two small
holes each side of the front panel, about 4cm apart from memory, that's
what it is. They may be filled with gribscrews on some vehicles, and
these are first removed.
The tools (one each side) look like (and are) pieces of thick wire bent
into a U-shape with small notches in the ends. You push them in until
they latch, then pull the unit out of the dashboard.
Car radio shops sell them (at least, some do; one place said "oh no,
trade only guv"). The next shop I tried was fine.
I removed the radio on my seat alhambra the other week. I used the 10mm wide
knife blade to push in to the
10mm by 2mm slots on the left and right of the radio (look closely for the
gaps). This dislodged the clip
mechanism and the radio slid out okay.
I used two of the aforementioned knives, just don't snap the blades or you
are in worse trouble!
