Default 1990 XJS radio removal

So, I can't get the bitch out. I need the serial number on it so I can get the code from the dealer. Its the original tape deck Jag radio and I need to get it working. Does anyone know any easy way to remove it?

I'll check back tomorrow in hopes of some answers. I understand that this forum moves slower than others that I'm used to, but I hope there will be some insight on this subject soon. Thanks again for atleast looking.

Pull both climate control knobs, straight off, use a 90 degree seal pick if they're tight.

Underneath each is a barrel nut, there is a factory tool to loosen them but if you dig through your selection of needle nose pliers/ snap ring pliers you can find something that will work.

Carefully remove the climate control faceplate, use the 90 degree seal pick in the lower slot and at the corners to pull it loose. It's stuck, there is nothing else securing it to the console.

Don't cut or break the six black fiber optic strands to the panel, just lay it flat out of your way.

The radio chassis is retained by four plastic rivets: push the centers in, then you can pull the plastic rivets...and the radio chassis... out of the cenrer console.

For reassembly, get some 1/8 aluminum pop rivets. Knock the rivet heads off of the nails, and use the rivet heads to push into the centers of the plastic rivets to expand them when reinstalled.

Thank you Ohio. I really needed that info. I'll start working on it in the next few days or so. I've got a big ticket at work (underhood work) so my back and the backs of my knees are sore right now. I don't feel like doing anything but sit here.

Could I please ask you whether the rivets you've mentioned in your post are the ones circled red in my picture?
