theres 2 small square holes on each side of the radio, you can get a tool or just take a close hanger or something like that and push it into the holes and pull the radio out. there are tabs inside it that you are releasing it might take some finesse to get it out but itll go

The easiest way is with the ford radio removal tools available at most parts stores for 5 bucks or so. Or like the other poster said you can release them with a coat hanger, or I've even used small finish nails before.

Its a bit of a pain doing the later 2 if you haven't done one before as you don't have a "feel" for getting the clips released, but its definately do-able.
