    Unhappy 2004 Signum radio removal

    Hi,
    I am desperately trying to remove the head-unit from the signum Elite CTDi that I've just purchased. I want to fit a Parrot bluetooth kit but can't get the ****** raio out...

    I've bought the Halfords radio removal tool kit (two wires that I could've made from a coathanger!) but the radio aint budging! The wires go in, click etc. but no amount of pulling removes the radio - in fact, the tools eventually slip and I end up swearing a lot!

    So far, I've removed the glovebox, heater vents, climate control, dash trim, broken the front off of the radio (will sort that later!) the central console trim etc... I can get my hands all around the radio but no matter what I do, I can't even slightly dislodge it.

    Does anyone know if there are any hidden screws/bolts holding this thing in? - I suppose I could always leave the car unlocked on a local council estate... I'm sure the radio would be gone within minutes!

    Daran.

    take out the tray under the radio and pull out the fan control facia- this will also allow you to get your hand behind to give it some assistance

    Finally got it out - used a screwdriver to dig the cage out at each corner... can't believe those poxy little spring clips were actually holding it in so securely.
