    Lightbulb Help Need with Stereo Removal in Ka

    Were having a bit of bother trying to get the standard cassette player out of my Mum's Ford KA, weve put the 2 prongs in either side and attempted to pull the unit out but it wont budge, anyone know if there are any 'hidden' fixings that need to be removed before we can get it out or does it just need a bloody good tug??

    Just push the pins in, push them outwards to push the clips in on the stereo in and then pull

    No other fixings just a bit stubborn and sometimes the pins go the wrong side of the clips in the stereo

    the reason why you would of struggled is there is a small plastic but on the top of the stereo that fastens to the cars inner frame to stop it from moving so be careful you havnt snapped that.
