Default HELP - E46 M3 Navigation Removal

Hey guys,

I'm having some trouble removing the navigation unit from my E46 M3. I removed the center and passenger side trim, the 2 screws on either side of the navigation and the air vents above it. I tried just pulling it out but it wont really budge. Can someone please help me? Thanks

yes.. one slot on each bottom corner. u can use a thin metal hanger and bend it into a U shape so you can depress both sides at the same time.
