You can buy radio removal tools from a number of sources and none are very expensive. The least expensive vendor I remember anyone mentioning here is Harbor Freight Tools.

Hi Ohlord, shouldn't an aftermarket unit fit into the well with the same mechanism?

I found this before regarding removing the central panel, not sure it would help, but there are 2 screws behind the radio unit before the center panel can be removed.
