    Quadlock won't come out!

    Had to put the fiscon back in to demo it to someone and I can't get the quadlock out from the radio after putting the fiscon in

    The catch lifts up as per usual but the plug won't come out!

    Any ideas?

    theres two circular protrusions that the lifting part of the quadlock need to catch into for it to push away from the stereo itself, make sure they're both in properly.

    I've had this issue in the past - had to resort to a small screwdriver to carefully provide additional leverage at the top of the quadlock to radio body. Ordered a new quadlock from nexxia.co.uk for about a fiver.

    Yep saw those - have had the radio out many times and hasn't happened before - ended up pushing the tab right back then snapped it back into the grooves

    Yep, used the screwdriver to push the tab right forward then as above, pushed down and it snapped back into its grooves and got it out .. Thankfully!!!

    Cheers guys!
