removing the radio
#1
i have a 2008 1.4 multispace with a Clarion radio/cd which does not work very well.
i decided to replace it with a mp3 player but it I can not get the damn thing to come out.i bought removal tool but it is impossible to know if the tool is doing anything.I only know the radio does not release.
Does anyone know where I can get the correct tool for a Clarion radio/cd?
Or any reason why this player will not pop out.

Thanks

I found out that the tangs securing the unit were buckled(see below) and therefore the tool could not engage.The solution was quite easy.
I used a flat bladed tool(paint scraper) wrapped in cloth to prise the plastic surround out far enough to see the tangs and then pushed the tangs inward until the unit released.There was no damage and the plastic snapped back nicely.I cant believe I paid Halfords £4.99 for two wee bits of wire(sorry,its a removal key)Wink
