You’ll need a set of radio removal keys. Push them in each side and the radio should just pop out. Replaced my old clarion CD player a while ago with a new DAB radio with Bluetooth.

I've gotten those keys before on eBay / Amazon, but I don't see the spots where you insert on this one?

Having trouble posting but that appears to be an older model with the retaining nuts behind the knobs. Pull them off and take a look.

I replaced mine this spring . But now it only randomly piers up. Anyone know where the power comes from? Must be loose connection somewhere.

My radio is powered right from DC Main. I don’t have it connected to any of the fuses on DC Panel. It has in inline fuse on the back of the radio on red wire. Sounds like a loose connection or the fuse is not properly pushed together.

Turns out part of the power comes from resettable relay right above and behind the batteries. The delay was weak and would trip. Boat yard traced it out and replaced it. I think they have most power come from Dc panel, but also from battery direct through this relay to keep memory stations set when you turn off DC/ battery switch. Since they changed out no issues. As a matter of safety, I
don’t turn on electronics until engine started and preheaters are cycled off. Thanks for the info.
