Phone Cradle removal

I have a cradle for a V710 in my car and need to remove it. How do I get the damned thing out? I have searched but can't find an answer.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

The crowbar might work better than the hammer I was thinking of using...

Is it just the cradle you want to remove or the eject box as well? The cradles are easily removed as they are "snap-in" so they can be swapped for different phones. The eject box is fastened and wired in. You need to do the reverse of the install which is located

Although it is for a 5 (e60) the process is identical.

Also try searching in the 5 series section on this board (I did not)

what are you going to do with it once it's gone. I'm trying to get a cradle so I can get a phone.

I am going to get rid of it. The V710 is out of production now, so I don't know if you can find that phone or one that uses the same case. If so, I would be happy to sell it cheap.
