How to remove your car radio to locate the serial number: Alternative Guide

Some radios require specialist removal keys in order to remove the radio from the vehicle Including but not limited to Audi, Volkswagen, Skoda, some later Ford Models and various other units. A more common removal guide is also available.

The radio removal keys in this example look like the following illustration :

Step 1

On the front of the radio, there will be between two and four small cut-outs towards each corner.

Insert a set of removal keys (as illustrated) into these holes and they should click into place, at which point they can not be removed until the radio has been pulled out.

Step 2

This should release the clips allowing you to slide the radio out. Remember, the radio will still be attached to the vehicles wiring.

Once its out enough, simply remove the antenna connection and the wiring block if required, or locate the serial number leaving the connections in place.
