    Why take it out? It's what, a $75 dollar microwave, and will be several years old when you are done with the truck. If prying it out of the hole will be that hard, screw it, leave it for the next driver.

    Yeah you are right. I managed to get it in. I'm not worried about getting it out. It is now a permanent peace of equipment.

    Microwave radiation won’t harm you if you are far from it. Being 2 inches from the surface of a microwave that is turned on is no good. The further away, the better.

    By the way, damaged microwave doors can leak more radiation than they’re supposed to, so we truckers, especially, need to check the doors to ensure it still seals properly.

    +1 Brute force usually wins when you are dealing with cheap molded plastic.

    I turned in that truck over a year ago and removing the microwave was easier than getting it in. Opening the door seemed to help.
