    Can't remove my cd30 radio

    Ive tried everything to get it out. I put the removal keys in and they just pull straight back out they do not lock in and the radio stays locked in place! Anybody know how to get the thing out?

    Try a flathead with a rag around the metal to prevent scratching around the edge whilst the keys are in and prise out and wiggle. I had the same problem, keep moving and prising all sides with the screwdriver, hope this helps

    push the removal keys in as far as they will go, and then pull then to the side before pulling them out so they lock onto the radio

    yh most people think you just put them in and they pull out ... this isnt true lol

    you need to put them in fully then push them to the sides and then pull out

    as above!

    you will know your far enough in as almost all of the removal key will actually go into the hole, its quite deceiving as alot of removal keys I've had for previous HU's don't go in half as far.

    when there is roughly 2-3cm gap between HU and removal key, you're about in the right place, then just push them outwards and pull towards you.

    This could be made to sound so dirty

    hahaha :D I did think the same when I read it back before posting, but it was so much better to leave it without editing it out, genuinely put a smile on my face as I pressed reply
