    thats right my rns-e is stuck in dashboard with both the removal keys in their slots and will not budge.

    Ive just done the rns-e install and was putting everything back together again, i did a quick check to see that i could remove the rns-e ok with the keys before i screwed in the tunnel and glove box to finish off but its no good.

    any help would be greatly received

    Take off the glovebox again and also the drivers storage trim so you can access from behind to try give a little wiggle. also try get a flat head screw driver down the sides of the unit to where the keys are to try flick the metal tabs to release it.

    Why did you have the keys in still when you put in the RNS-E? It should've just pushed in place without the need for the keys as the keys are purely for the removal.
