    reason why stereo won't come out?

    Hi all,

    really struggling trying to get Symphony stereo out of my B7 Avant. With all 4 release keys in, and audiable click, with key point facing inwards, the thing just won't budge an inch. I've tried the trick of pulling on the keys outwards, but they just pull straight out if I try and pull too hard. The keys are so thin, doesn't half hurt too! Any suggestions? I can't see what I'm doing wrong. Have done this plently of times with other cars, including my last 2 Audi's - an A3 & Avant.....

    cheers

    I'm guessing you are using a cheapo set of keys that are too thin to use. Get a decent set and it should come straight out.

    I had the same problem and B5Nut gave me a thicker set, worked a treat.

    Whenever I want to get my stereo out, I just pop to my local Audi parts and borrow there keys. Might help that I spend a lot of money with them! But I would go in and ask. Once, one of the guys actually came out and pulled it out for me!
