Help, how do I get the stereo out of the bezel?

At the moment I'm trying to repaint ym radio bezel but I dont know how to get this after market thing out. Its a single din so the spacer with the radio is what I'm trying to remove. Is there any special thing I'm supposed to do?

Me no rick remmonade.

on mine i had bent some tabs on the metal sleeve around the actual head unit to make it a little easier. then i just had to push in the tabs on the plastic part that held the bracket in, there were 6 of them, 3 on the right, 3 on the left.

I just painted my bezel, and installed my pioneer head unit.

I second this...check the housing on the radio for tabs bent out that would be holding it into place...after you bend those back in, should slide right out...then the plastic spacer should just be plastic tabbed onto the bezel, and the tabs should pop off around the bezel and come out.

Fairly simple
