if you look through the tape slot you should see two bolts in the back of the head unit, these hold it on. take to them with a chisel and hammer. this should solve you problem.

If you want to do it the factory way:

1) Disconnect the battery earth lead

2) Remove instrument panel compartment, centre console (Berlina and Calais), heater case to panel cover assembly, instrument cover assembly, lower instrument panel extension and upper instrument panel pad assembly.

3) Pull and lift back the left hand air outlet duct from the air distibution duct.

4) Remove the radio/cassette player rear bracket attaching screws from the instrument panel carrier.

5) Remove all the left hand lower instrument panel to instrument panel attaching screws.

6) Lower left hand instrument panel to the floor.

7) Remove the front anti-theft mounting bracket screws and bracket. Remove the rear bracket attaching screw from the rear of the radio/cassette player assembly and remove bracket.

8)Insert radio/cassette player removal tool (CMT113) into slots in right and left hand sides of the unit and pull unit out from instrument panel.

9) Disconnect wiring harness connector and antenna lead from radio/cassette player.

10) From behind sides of radio fascia, depress locking spring mechanism. This will enable the removal tools to be removed from the radio/cassette player.
