    Hi Guys

    I've just purchased in the last three months an '04 A3 2.0 TDI...
    Currently I'm trying to swap out the stock stereo system for an aftermarket one that gives me iPod compatibility, I've bought the extraction keys and tried to take it out but alas I can only get 3 of the 4 corners out =/ I took it down to a nearby Halfords and said to them i'd buy a stereo off them to put in if they could get the original one out. After a good hour they gave up too, they reckon one of the release pins is bent cause it's not catching on the extraction tool like the other corners are... apparently it's a fairly common issue (maybe the previous owner has had a go and damaged it?) but does anybody have any ideas as to how I can get it out?

    Keep outward pressure on the keys, i.e. towards the doors.
