Looking for some quick help in Bryan/College Station, TX

I hate to start a whole thread just for this but I couldnt think of another way to ask. I'm attempting to pull the factory head unit out of my truck and I messed with it for about 2 1/2 hours tonight and couldn't get it, and I even went and got the special tool for it. Is there anybody around me that could help me to pull the deck or may know some trick, I'm trying not to break it. Thanks

I'm not super familiar with the OBS interior, but can you/did you take the front of the dash out? A lot of times that piece will cover fasteners that are actually holing the unit in. Other than that, are you planning on putting the old one back in or replacing it? If it's junk anyway, it may be time fore the heavy artillery.

So you used something like this but no luck? With the right pressure and touch the radio should just slide on out. No need to get rough with it.lol

Use those pins pictured push the forward, then push in an out ward direction away from each other so as to make the bite and while still applying this outward force gently pull them toward you, if your not pushing out ward the pins will just pull rite back out, once it comes out about 1/4-1/2 inch you can just pull it the rest of the way out by hand, don't snatch it out the wires are at least 15 years old so they can break pretty easily, good luck

I tried all of that. Those are the pins I used too. I can get the drivers side of the deck loose but for whatever reason the passenger side is sticking.

Push pin in harder while the drivers side is still out and wiggle hard till it pops out
