When the stereo in your Mercedes starts to act up it may be time to fix it or replace it with a new one. In order to do either of these things you will first need to get the stereo out of the car. For this task you will need a specially designed tool to remove the stereo without damaging it or the dashboard of your car.

Factory Mercedes Stereos
Mercedes Benz vehicles come standard with a Bose stereo system. While these stereos are typically of a higher quality than most factory installed stereos, they can still break down. It may be, alternatively, that you may decide to customise your Mercedes with something different. For convenience's sake Mercedes designed the Bose stereo to be easily removed from the dash with a simple tool.
Mercedes DIN Removal Tools
You can purchase a set of Mercedes DIN removal tools either online or from a Mercedes authorised dealer. Depending on the model of your Mercedes and the type of Bose stereo installed in it, you will need either two or four removal tools. The removal tools look like small knives. They have a circular hook on one end and come to a point. To use the tools, simply slide the tools into the radio cluster slots on the left and right of your radio. The tools will snap in and you will be able to pull out the radio by the hooks on the ends of the tools. Make sure you order the tools recommended for your year and model of Mercedes.
Whenever you are working on the electrical system of a car, it is wise to disconnect the negative battery cable from your battery. This will greatly reduce the risk of electrocution. The negative battery cable is black and can be removed from the battery using a wrench. When you pull out the stereo you will notice two groups of wires coming out of the back of the stereo. Gently pull them to release them from the Mercedes dash.
