there not coat hanger wire, its got a little groove and bullet head that click into place and latches onto the deck as you yank it out. Normal coat hanger wire wont do it bc its too weak and no grooves.
Try some fine screw drivers and push them outwards but you'll need someone else to wedge something between the deck to get it out while you 'unlock' it - bit fiddly and annoying :evil:

mmm

i tried for ages to get my AU head unit out * to fit cd player *
even the ford factory toosl could not do it

when u use the wire you can push the clips to 1 side

so even teh right tools will not work

only solution.... break the HU that is in there around the sides with a screwdriver and hammer
