From the service manual on a 95 which will be the same type mount here is the instructions. I place of the tool, I used two small flat pieces of metal.

Good Luck
Jim

Removal

1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.

2. Remove the four mounting bracket screws.

3. Insert Radio Removing Tools T87P-19061-A, one on each side of the radio, into the access holes in bezel until a click is heard. Apply an outward side pressure to release the locking tangs and slide the radio from the dash.

4. Disconnect the radio power lead, antenna lead-in cable and the speaker lead wires at the radio.

5. Remove the support bracket from the back of the radio.

6. To disengage Radio Removing Tool T87P-19061-A, depress the locking tangs on side of the radio while applying slight inward pressure on the tool and pulling tool out of access holes.

You can use a coat hangar to get it out. Cut the coat hangar into pieces and make a couple of "U" shaped pieces. Insert into those holes on the radio pull the "U" shaped pieces away from the radio. You might have to do one side at a time and work it out, but there aren't any other bolts / connectors holding it in. Except for the wiring harness plugged into the back of the unit.

There is a slide that holds the back of the radio. When you get the retaining clips released, you may have to wiggle the radio back and forth to get it to slide. You can also use small nails to release the clips, but it is worth the price to get a set of removal tools from Walmart.
