    How Do I get my Radio out

    Hi I have just got my Astra MklV 1.7TDi and wanted to change the radio. Does anybody know how they come out? I have what I believe to be the right radio release keys but it doesn't seem to want to come out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    If its the u shaped keys you push them in as far as they'll go, then pull them outwards and towards you at the same time. Only other thing i can think is some have grub screws in the holes that you need to take out first.
    N.b. any opinitons expressed above should be ignored and considered 'ramblings', under no circumstances should they be relied upon...

    Pioneer should have an ISO plug fitted to it, so all you need to do is swap the red & yellow wires around.
    Provided it has a remote socket on the rear you should be able to get a remote interface lead for it.

    All sorted now thanks!

    Going to go down to the local audio dealers and find out about the remote interface lead.
