    Apologies if this is a dumb question (I did try searching and couldn't find any clues) - but how do you remove the radio?! It's an original-looking Radiomobile unit mounted in the trapezoid face plate, however I can't see any obvious screws or fasteners...

    The radio itself works, but the tuning is stuck (issue "feels" mechanical rather than electrical) and I want to open it up and take a look. Maybe try and add an aux-in if I can. But first I need to be able to get the radio out of the car! Again, sorry if this should be obvious, but I don't want to be hamfisted and accidentally break some irreplaceable bit of trim or some such...

    The mounting plate just pulls off the console. Undo the radio from it, push the radio towards the front of the car, then grip the mounting plate top and bottom and twist the bottom off the console.

    I would take the speaker out, its held in with a couple of screws and then get at the radio easily to pull it out.

    Thanks both! Just pulling it felt precarious but made more sense once I went in via the speaker grille and could reach behind it to pull. It's out now anyway.
