    I'm pretty sure the card just pops off, need to remove the seats as well though i think.

    im wondering if it could just be a loose wire of some kind,as i recently fitted a new refurbished radio 2weeks ago,the noise is like whining to the sound of my engine speed if you know what i mean,and if i bang on the side of the radio it goes away for a few secs then comes back????

    Sounds like at bad earth, this will cause the whine through your speakers related to engine speed

    Hey-

    are you running line-level feeds to your subwoofer first?

    This contains the amps to run the rest of the system- the noise you describe sounds like a bad ground link on the channel for that part of the car- if you've never been in-about the subwoofer you need to check out the headunit connections you've made in the dash...
