    Tried the key both round both ways, at the moment the fascia is off the stereo and I still can't see how to release the clip on the left hand side, has anyone got any ideas ??

    Speak to 'MarcQuinlivan' mate, retro king

    The left hand clip is or should be exactly the same as the other one mate.

    You gotta have patience and gradualy put them in. I found I was pushing mine in too far.
    take your time and be gentle.

    If you've already put them in the wrong way round then chances are you've knackered the clip. When you say the fascia is off, do you mean the whole of the front of the HU? You need to prise off the whole of the front of the HU, this will give you access to the *******.
