Default SL40 Removal from RV12

Before I break something, is there anything holding the radio in the tray beside the one small screw. Iím not having much luck sliding the radio out..

When you loosen the Allen screw in the face of the radio it should start to come out. Once this happens you should be able to grasp enough of the radio to pull it out of the tray.

Where is the Allen screw? Also, upon further inspection, I don’t think the Phillips head screw shown in the first photo needs to come out either.

YOU THA MAN! Worked perfectly! That tab is what was locking it in place. Just a half a turn and I could feel the radio release..

Thank you!
