Finally! LCD radio display change video

I replaced my really bad LCD screen (refer to the video) with better one (fading but not busted)
The biggest challenge was to remove a face panel assembly because the California sun deformed it badly. On the wrecking yard I used modified nail puller (made from steel) in aggressive manner and, ironically, it worked better than "gently prying" method with a pink Honda tool I used on my car! Note: I did not get it from the white car in the video; just added its images to impress some ladies!

I removed the knob by prying its cover first, then by inserting 3 homemade prying wedges (made from bimetal hacksaw blade) 4 mm wide and 25 mm long into the slots on the knob's stem ID. This action releases the locking tabs and allows a knob to be pried out from the panel

There are much better tutorials for radio removal (my video does not show removal of the screws attaching radio to the brackets, but gives general idea how to swap the screen)
