    Default anyone in beds/cambs with radio removal keys

    is there anyone in bedfordshire/cambs that has radio removal keys for a vectra standard stereo?

    i need to get mine out to get the serial so it can be decoded by vaux as my car pass isn't working and need to get it out tomorrow really as im going away for the weekend and dont fancy a 2/12 hour drive without a stereo haha!

    i was planning on going to halfords but checking on their site i can't find the keys for vaux, only ford

    would be much appreciated and i can pop round tomorrow and get it removed while im there!

    Won't the garage be able to take it out? If they're a vauxhall garage, I'm sure they'll remove it for you. If not, I am in Dunstable if that's any use to you, but will be going to luton about 10.30a.m. So you can visit me at either location if it's not too far for you to come. Will have the keys with me anyway. PM me if interested and will send you the details.

    As the big man says, unscrew the 4 grub screws and just stick a metal hanger, welding rod or long thin screw drivers up each hole.

    Easy to do with many different options, long jewellers screwdrivers always used to be my weapon of choice, but metal coat hangers, welding rods, whatever will get it out. The grub screws are tiny allen key holes.

    I bought a set of the removal keys which I keep handy just incase others need them (dont need them myself anymore as I have an Alpine unit fitted these days).

    If you get stuck and can get down to Stevenage one evening or on Saturday, I can get it out for you fella.
