pretty sure you can buy them on ebay, however when i took the factory deck out of my au, i just used two lengths of coathanger bent to fit. push into the holes as per the pic above, and then pull towards you, the deck should slide out

Ahhh, this is what i've been looking for. Can anyone post up a picture of the wire itself. Is it just straight at the ends or is it bent?

Also does anyone know if you can just tap the wires leading to the speakers when installing a new headunit? I want to keep all the wiring intact so that I can slot the factory fitted unit back in when I decide to sell.

Hi Chewie. we just cut 4 lengths of wire out of the coathanger and just played around with it. got it out in the end.
