Head unit removal

I'm half way done with mounting my aftermarket speakers (rear deck is done... have to do the front now) and I'm wanting to put in my Pioneer headunit... problem being I can't seem to get the original deck out. I see what appears to be release holes (either side of the unit, dead center), but I have nothing that will fit in them, and they can not be pushed in to release the unit. Anyone know how to get this dang thing out?

I cut up 5" lengths from a steel wire coat hanger and used them to stick into the holes.

A small thin flat head....like the ones you use to fix your glasses.

Push the tab from left to right and it should come right out. And vice versa for the other side.

If I think that's the right head unit....a pic would help.

Yeah... I had to find an allen wrench close enough to the size of the 'screws' to get the flaps to come in. I'd never seen anything like that before... It appeard to be something where you had to push in a pin to get the flaps to pull in. Live and learn (1st Bimmer) - Thanks everyone for all your help! Now if I could just figure out what's still holding the dash on. Lol.
