removing stereo
#1
is it possible to use really thin screwdrivers instead of stereo removal keys? It's such an arse to get things over here and the local dealers will charge me a fortune as this is France and nothing is cheap except wine. I only need the serial number to get the code to unlock the damn thing
why do i always find thing five seconds after asking a question

Old wire coat hangers make great stereo removal tools!

I find hex keys work well, coat hangar wire is sometimes a little too large diameter.

Many years ago someone used what appeared to be a crow bar to remove my stereo.
And a hammer to open the window first.
Bit messy; but it worked.

I still havent got round to taking it out yet but glad that it looks like it'll be easy! Thanks for the ideas (as I can't find a wire coat hangar anywhere anyway)

Here in the UK if you take your log book to a dealer they will tell you the code.
