ok...here's what you gotta do....there is a little removable black panel on the far left and right side of the HU. these will pop off...try prying from the edge with a screw driver. Now here's the TRICKY part...you can't do this one on your own. You need the Ford/Mazda "keys" to pull it out...no way around it. Supposedly you can get the keys at an auto parts store for roughly 5$, but your best bet is just to swing by the dealer or any car audio place...they will have them. They shouldn't charge you anything to do it, but that's what you have to do. Put them in the holes, push away from the HU and pull out. The little baby just slides right out.

Hell yeah, i just did the four nails and it came out fine for me, just put a little pressure and pull and it works fine. Thanks for the idea.
or if too cheap, get 4 nails that fit kinda snug in the holes, and do the same thing. I just figured no need to waste $5 on something you will use once, maybe twice, unless you do this for a living.

im new to the board but just yesterday i bought a '95 626 .. i bought a cd player and thought i could install it myself.. well i got the little black panels on Left and right side of the radio off ..i even took a screw driver and moved those little 4 brackets on the sides of the radio ...i put screws in the holes like stated above.. and pulled..the only thing that came out was the face of the radio lol.. what did i do wrong and how can i get it out?? i took out the change/etc holder under the radio its like something is holding it..

the faceplate is not suppose to come off like that
i found out through trill and error with my deck and in the end i just ended up goin to a pro to install it
but i did however figure how to get teh deck out
u know those 2 plastic tabs that u have on either side of the deck..tkae the tabs off and underneath are holes
use somethgin that can fit into all those holes
push down in the hole and pull pegs either outward or inward
thayt should get the hooks lose and your can pull it out
its a pain .save the tym and get a pro to do it
