    from memory, without tryin to find my old headunit, there is four holes at each corner, think there is a small grub screw in each one, remove these then u hav to insert a set on "headunit keys" r i used a very thin long screw drivers, into these holes to release the catchs that hold the headunit in, heavy gauage stiff wire also worked for me but has to be 2 or 3 mm thick. headunit should then be able to be withdrawn. hope this helps.

    As above, but job made easier by a set of Double DIN pullers as they have little hooks on them to then let you pull the unit out with the pullers - a few quid from Halfords.

    And prepare for a frustrating afternoon, if it don't come straight out, go to the local ICE shop and drop a fitter a fiver to get it out for you, it seems to weld itself in after a while, but they will know the trick to getting it out. hth.

    Nah, no need for that VV. Piece of pee to get them out, especially using the aforementioned Double DIN puller.

    - I'm all for saving a few quid where I can, but sometimes there's no substitute for the right tool, which I'm happy to stump up for when it makes the job sooo much easier. Once the grub screws are out, I can have my HU out within 30 seconds.
