Ok, i need to take my radio out.

unscrew 2 mounting screws. pull it out, remove FM antenna and WB antenna,

follow the super descriptive diagram to raise the case for the connector with a screwdriver. then what?

you mean the black connector?
after you raise the plastic lock with a flat-head, then you slide the connector out. It may require a bit of wiggling.

17 minutes to answer my question, you're slipping justin:D

which way to i pull it? (i wouldn't ask a follow up but i've already spend 1/2 hour + just trying to get the last connector out. If im looking at the unit from the front (lcd display right side up towards me), the connector slides down?

sorry im really not very good at this:(
