well if it's anything like my alpine deck then you have to remove the decorative ring that surrounds the deck first then at the bottom of the deck on both sides (right at the corners) you will see 2 little pins that stick out just a bit. lift thos up and slide the deck forwards.

Okay. Your deck should've came with a metal thingy... this metal thingy is a key to take your deck out. If you've thrown out your box, then you can get this from pretty much any stereo shop.. they usually have a box of these things at the back, and can take your deck out for you. If this isn't an option, or you're too lazy to bother (like me), then:

1. remove the plastic trim around the deck.
2a. you'll see flat metal tabs on either side of the deck. Use a flat head screw driver in the middle of this tab (on the outside of the tab, away from the deck), and pry towards the deck. The deck will push out. Do the same on the other side. Then pull the deck the rest of the way out by hand.

2b. if your deck does not have tabs on the side, but an actual lock further back, then you'll need a butter knife. Slide is down the slide and give it a hard shove.. it'll push the locking mechanism and the deck will unlock. Easier if you get two butterknives, and do both sides at the same time.
