    What should I use

    As im extremely excited about fitting my new pioneer into the car - I really cant be bothered waiting till tomorrow before I get the old one removed by the garage. I dont have the tools to do it so Vauxhall are kindly gonna remove my old one. But as I cant wait - and want it done NOW! Whats best to use to remove the old one! please dont say kitchen knife or hammer! anyone any bright ideas...... o and dont do what my wife says and say "just wait you big kid"

    What 'old' one ?

    Standard Vauxhall ?

    If yes..you need a small allen key to remove 4 grub screws..then insert 4 long thin things to release the stereo.
    then pull gently.

    If other...use removal keys supplied with the unit.

    If its the VX unit - then cut a metal coathanger up to get the 2 'u' shapes to insert in once the grub screws are out.

    honestly mate dont pay the dealer to get the unit out. it's very simple as described
    you can buy the stereo keys from any where like motorworld, halfords etc
