Default Anyone know how to take apart Sportster?

I'm having trouble taking apart my original Sportster. I take out the 2 screws in the back but can't get any further. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Never had a Sportster apart, but have had a Starmate Replay apart. Once the screws came down, you will probably have to find a good place to pry the face of the radio from the backing piece. A thin flat head screwdriver would work. Be careful until you can get it in there enough to pry it open.

Let me know what you come up with, I've been too afraid to use the pry method on mine.

I was interested in seeing how I could fix that antenna connector...

You do have to pry to get the front and back halves apart. There are clips inside around the perimeter of the two halves. Gently pry, get one to unclip and continue to pry around the inside, prying the rear halve outward to unclip them all. Sort of hard to describe. Be gentle while doing it. The front and back will come apart. Takes a lot of patience too. Use a thin knife or other similar object to pry that rear halve outward all around its perimeter.
