Hello... sorry to hear you are having a problem. If your truck is a Superduty F-250, this is the procedure to remove your radio.

-Engage the parking brake
-For automatic transmission vehicle ONLY, insert key into the ignition and turn to the "on" position and depress the brake pedal (DO NOT START THE VEHICLE!), then place the shift lever into the lowest position.
-Lower the steering column all the way down
-Starting at the top edge of the dash trim bezel, carefully unclip and pull forward the dash trim bezel to access all the wire harness connectors attached to the features on the rear of the trim bezel.
-Carefully disconnect all the connectors on the back side of the dash trim bezel and remove the bezel.
-Remove the (4) 9/32 screws securing the radio to the sub-dash.
-Remove and disconnect the radio.

I hope this has helped! Good luck with your venture!!

Adding a remote USB port

I solved my own problem.1 I removed radio1.gif face 2 I removed back cover of radio face to expose USB solder joints.3 I drilled a hole in the back cover of radio face over solder joints 4 I drilled a hole in front cover of radio behind face plate and lined it up with hole in back cover of face plate.5 I cut the male plug off of a USB extension cord and ran it through factory notch on the back of radio,through drilled hole on front panel of radio, thruogh drilled hole on back cover of radio face and soldered wires to back side of USB plug in. Wire colors from top to bottom are Red, White, Green, Black. Solder sheild to any of the three larger solder joints next to these connections. Make sure wires are not touching any other connections. Put radio back together and add screw that locks face to radio. Face can no longer be removed with this wire added. Now I can plug in my 8gb memory stick1.gif,hide it under the dash and have a clean looking installation.
