All I have read is that it can only be removed with this Din tool and I have no access to it, Are there no other means?I cant see any screw. Thanks

You have to remove the trim pieces to access the holes and or screws. Get a set of nylon interior pry bar interior removal tools to help.

Anyone can tell why the radio no longer comes on after I try to insert the coat hanger tool which I imitated locally into the holes?
