    Hello Guys, I installed a rns-e a couple a weeks ago but now am trying to install a BT kit. However i cant remove the radio either using the keys as keys dont hold and by removing glovebox and pushing from behind..its not budging!! Has anyone else had this problem or know how to remove the radio as im totally stuck now! any help much appreciated.

    You are pushing the keys in to far. the unit should spring out of its own accord so no need to pull.

    Slide each one in a little at a time, they dont go in far, make sure you have the keys round the right way !! If you push then to far it just jams the unit in the dash

    If you try the keys with the unit out you can see it takes only about 5mm of insertion to depress the springs. :)
