Going from memory:

if it still has the original Becker radio in it:
Pull of the volume and tuning knobs and the two black toggles
Gently remove the face plate
You should see two horizontal bars, each with a screw with slot for a flat headed screwdriver, unscrew and remove bars
radio should now pull straight out, don't yank because the antenna and power leads can be very short and on some models there was a rubber bumper that slid into a bracket at the rear of the radio
Check to see if there is an inline fuse on the power lead, some cars may not have these

If its an aftermarket radio or Blaukpaunt? (spelling) I do not know how they come out.

I'll have to check to see what I have for removing the dash on a W115
