Re: Replacing Radio

You need 2 standard radio keys (U-Shaped prong thingys) to poke in the 4 small holes in the front of the radio. Get them from halfords etc, or just borrow them if you don't want to buy them.

Or you could always get lucky with cocktail sticks...

I made mine from an old wire coat hanger, works perfectly. You'll notice 4 small holes in the front of your radio/cassette, they go in there to unlock the latching mechanism.
