    Default Radio Metal Cage

    Still trying to fit an aftermarket CD/Radio to my 2003 Vectra. Got the unit to work now (thanks to help from this forum) but now need to tidy up the fitting. I have a plastic mould that reduces the gap to a standard unit but do I need to take out the old metal cage ? I have removed one torx screw at the rear of the cage but it still is not wanting to come out. I can see that there are indentations all round the edge of the cage which appear to hold it in position but is there anything else holding it ?

    The aftermarket CD/Radio sticks out from the front of the dash and so I think I need to remove this cage to give me more depth and also to enable the cage from my new unit to fit. Is this correct please ?

    All help gratefully rec'd.

    Thanks

    Yeah the original cage needs to come out. On the bottom of it it's got a line runs up the middle. I bent mine upwards along this line. I was quite brutal with it too but it came out eventually with a bend and a tug. I bent it back into shape when it was out of the car so no harm done.
