    Fitting RNS-E Sat Nav

    Hi guys,

    Just received my RNS-E Sat Nav, looking to fit it tonight if possible. Have rung my local Audi dealer but they said they haven't got any tools in stock to get the original stereo out and it will take 3 days to get them in. Do I need these removal keys to get it out? Or can I use the old coat hanger trick?

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you get the plain metal ones or the ones with plastic coated handles?

    The RNS-E can be a very tight fit sometimes, and the plain metal ones can cut into your fingers if you're not careful.

    I've found you can do it with 2.
    Do one side then they'll wriggle loose. Then pull out the other side.
    Atlas Grey A4 2.5 TDI Quattro Sport.
    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.

    Hi guys,

    Got another set of keys from halfords, had an absolute nightmare with them and took em straight back.

    Ended up cutting my hand, and scratching the original unit. Going to wait until the Audi keys come and do it that way. Hate being patient lol but don't want to force it out!

    Thanks all for the advice

    My advice would also be protect the console sides with tape or thin plastic before removing either the radio or the climate unit....the plastic marks very easily !

    What I said... the Halfords ones are for masochists.
