Default Head Unit Question for 93 SSEi

I wanna take the head unit out of my 93 SE so I can put it in my 93 SSEi. Heres the question. As I was tryna take the cover off to get to teh head unit, it seemed to not wanna comes off and I dont just wanna take it off the wrong way and break it so how should I take it off. Should I just pop it off from anywhere or is there a certain corner or side I should pop out first. After that im straight im just stuck there thats all.

The dash panel is only held on by push on clips. They do a great job and sometimes need a little work to loosen up.

I personally start at the top of the panel, at the driverside or directly above the radio/climate control. It'* the best area for me to get my fingers in there w/o gouging the panel with tools.

It'* the one piece that still grabs tight as before when you take it off a few times...

Stupid headliner handles, stupid door panels.. Stupid window switch panel..

Well some of us (or our passengers have broken the handles... and have been too lazy to straighten out the switch panelclips..

It feels like you're going to break it, then it pops off. Lord knows i've taken mine off a lot with my switches and all.
