    the is a tool that goes in those holes on each side of the radio.they are cheep but if you don't whant to buy them you can take 2 pieces of coat hanger bend both to a u shape anstick them in the holes about 1.5" to 2" then put apart and then out, should slide right out
    good luck.

    It's a DIN tool for Ford radio/cassette removal,most sound shops carry them also Wal-Mart,auto stores,etc....cost just a few dollars.Slide it into the little holes till you hear a click then push outward while pulling toward you.Sometimes it becomes a real pain ....but work with it,the cd will come out. Do you have the JBL system or the Premium system?

    its the Premium system.

    i called wal-mart and canadian tire today, both didn't have the tools. they told me the same thing though, use a coat hanger.

    so i kept on trying this morning, but i just can't seem to get it out.
