    Hi all
    I am going about removing a CAR 200 from my 2000(W) reg corsa envoy.
    Its a bugger!
    I have read on the internet about sticking a pointed object into the 4 holes
    at the sides to prise the catches off.
    I am really getting no results with this, even with two people.
    Can anyone advise me on the proper way to remove this. Even a guide would be
    superb, but im not going to ask for the world!
    Thanks in advance
    Sam

    It should be easy enough if you get the tool specifically designed to do
    this. I got one today from Halfords car audio department for £4.29 (in my
    local shop [Bracknell], it was in one of the glass-fronted cupboards they
    keep locked up). It's basically a pair of u-shaped bits of metal with
    prongs at each end designed to click into the catches - you can then pull on
    the base of the u-bits to remove the stereo. £4.29 is a bit of a rip off
    for two bits of metal, but it did the job. Other shops may well be cheaper.

  4. The tool costs about 4 quid or so from Halfords, or you can make one up with
    2 bits of bent coat hanger. You might have to remove 2 tiny (1mm?) allen
    keys from the holes first.

  5. Your local Vauxhall dealer will probably do it for free. It takes about a
    minute with an Allen key and the removers.
