How to remove 2010+ radio antenna cable ?

Hi, I am having trouble removing the stock radio / stereo from my 2010 mustang.

The black cable, looks to me like an antenna cable is stuck inside the radio. Do I just pull it really really hard? I actually tried that but the cable won't budge.

Am I missing something? Thanks

Pictures of said cable are attached.

Have you tried taking out those screws and seeing how it's connected on the inside? That would be my first step after the yanking-on-it method.

maybe try twisting? It could be a 1/4 turn lock. Then I would try removing/loosening the screw in the recess above the antenna

That cable was frustrating to pull out. Took quite a bit of force to remove it.

pretty sure the screw doesn't do anything. That is actually to take the radio apart.

Did you remove the cable just by plugging it out directly? If so, I'll just use a pair of pliers and a lot of force.

You just need to pull really really hard. It will eventually just pop out but it doesn't want to. I had the same thoughts when I was replacing my radio but in the end it will just pull straight out.
