No particular order to this, except that you need something in all 4
holes at the same time.  Some people use coat hangers but they didn't
work very well for me--too thin.  I used small screwdrivers.
Anyway, cram something in all four holes, then put your hand in the
cassette hole and pull it out.  The wires that connect it are kind of
short; if the radio doesn't pull out enough, open the ashtray and you'll
get a little more wire to work with.

Well the unit you have is a Blaupunkt in fact.  As for wiring, if you're
so inclined you can probably make one yourself--the pinouts for the
connectors are on stickers on the radio.
