How do I remove the in dash receiver?

The Becker cassette in-dash receiver in my 1992 300TE 4Matic is displaying an E-2 code when it is turned on. I have removed the rear unit, which I found to be completely corroded due to spillage from rear window washer fluid. To ensure that the problem with the radio is cured, I want to remove the in dash receiver and send it and the rear unit to Becker North America for repair, or replacement. My question is twofold: (1) how do I remove the in dash receiver? I got the two metal insert tools at MB and have correctly inserted them into the proper slots at the base of the receiver, but when I pull on them, the receiver doesn't budge. What am I doing wrong, or what else do I need to do? (2) Is there any alternative to the stock system, (which is far from great), that I can install for the same cost or less, than the cost of replacement, which is going to be about $2,500? Thanks.

#1 remove the center storage compartment between the seats. There are two screws in the forward section if you look inside. then the wood trim and plastic around the shifter come loose. then take out the two screws in the bottom of the ashtray. the ashtray ass comes out then there are tabs you push down to release the radio. If you are interested my repair shop handles the complete overhaul or repair of all becker radios as we are an authorized repair facility. Check it out at
