Removing radio

I know how to remove the radio from the bezel its just that I can't get the freakin harness to unsnap off the back. I've looked for clips but I can't see any to get undone. I know this has to be easier to get off then I think it is. Anyone got any clues?

There are four holes in the front. You can buy these wire loops at any auto parts store, mostly called "radio removal tools." You insert them in the holes, push them out slightly, and pull the radio out.

OK, I had this problem last week...

This is for the radio I have (its a 2006 6-cd in my 2003 xlt). The rectangular clip at the back, look on the bottom of the clip, there is a little piece of plastic that snaps down that locks the plug into the radio. I can't remeber, but it either lifts up or pushes down. I used a flat-head screwdriver to hold the clip down, worked perfect. The little plastic clip is hard to see and looks like apiece of the plug, but trust me, its there.

Took my a while to figure it out too, I had vice grips on that plug, everything! Then when I took out the flathead, out it popped.
