    How do you remove a vauxhall cd player?

    I've been to halfords and bought the below,But i can't see how i can use it for all 4 holes without bending it and then i don't know if i have the right tool?

    It says it for vauxhall players but i would of thought it would be already bent into place,i need to remove a vectra cd player

    They are a bugger to get out though u need to get the coat hanger in and pull on an angle to release the catch and then with some wiggling itll come out

    They are a right bugger to get out! I had the proper tools in solidly and the glove box off to push from behind. Knackered the CD drive but wedging it out! The trick is to push outwards on the tools as you pull. This has the effect of push the tool into the headunit on each side, pushing down the clips inside to get it out at the same time giving it grip to be pulled out.

    As said, you've bought the keys for a Mk5 double din version, you need these

    Take them back & get them changed.
