Bend it inwards at the centre of each side.
It's a tighter fit than the radio ;)

Cheers Al, instead of trying to force it, I used a bigger hammer. ::)
But can I release the aerial plug from the back? Can I hell. >:(
Start again tomorrow. :y
The tool you use for fuel filter clips is almost designed for this job :y

Yes, tabs around the cage.

The antenna connectors for radio/gps/phone have those little clips you have to pry from the inside of the cage - get a torch in it, its obvious (though fiddly)


On refit, get some silicone spray, and spray the cage and non exposed bits of the radio unit (avoiding connectors/fans etc!), as this will reduce the amount of sticking next time.

Thanks guys, delay on this due on house cleaning duties today. :-X
Yes I can see how it comes out, it has 3 plastic clips, but like most ancient plastic they will be age hardened, so I am reluctant to use my usual skilful engineering ability ::) to prise it out, due risk if breaking.
 Unfortunately I don't have the filter clip removal tool :(, although I should get one as I have a new filter in reserve.
 :y
I should mention why this is coming out. My Parrot Blue tooth is dead so I need to check where the connections are from the previous owners fitment. Although he left a sketchy wiring diag. it must come through an unknown fuse, and all are OK. :-\

A filter tool would be difficult to get in place.  I find a long screwdriver works
