Henry - from an old Magnadyne thread, per JAMiller45 (FR Engineer):
"Chevy and Ford, the radio will come out with the removal tools. Solera is attached to the plastic housing, so you need to remove the front panel, and then remove the screws(TORK) to take out the radio."

From one of my posts in the same thread:
"The removal tools that came with the unit don't work on the Solera installation, as far as I can tell. I pried/pulled off the simulated wood trim (snaps in), disconnected the connector to that piece (emergency flashers, etc), removed the screws for the radio and the climate controls (torqs type), jiggled the unit (radio plus climate controls) out from under the two screw connectors for the dash tray, and pulled it all out."

Link to that old thread: Magnadyne M4-LCD questions

Good Luck -

Thanks for the info I tried getting the radio out again today and no luck. So I did as you advise and took the dash apart. Afterward I noticed why the radio wouldn't come out. I don't know if these are installed as one unit (radio and bracket) but there was a zip lock attached to the back of the radio and bracket which is why the radio wouldn't slide out after using the removal tools. Anyway fixed that so now the radio does come right out with the use of the tools.

Echoing Jim. Glad to hear you got it out. I'll keep all that in mind. I plan on adding Sirius to mine, and will have to take it out.
