Does anyone know how to remove the audio unit without the special pronged tool?

I've tried a metal coat hanger but it doesn't seem to clip on tightly enough for me to pull it out

Thanks mate

The allen keys did the trick.

But now I can't pull out the unit completely to get to the wires behind the unit so I can disconnect it.

Should I yank it? - Any ideas?

Huh. allen keys? in an AU don't you use a tool.

Don't yank it it should be simple as unplugging it

I think I missed something. Is the headunit still in the dash? If so get a cloths hanger a metal one cut it roughly 20cms long try to bend it in the middle and then file out a notch about 1 to 2 mm in the end of the cut wire and then put both in and push out and it should gently slide out.

Or get 4 thinst allen keys and do the same.
