Check out Crutchfield.com (click here
) for their OEM DIN removal tools.
You'll need a wiring harness and an antenna adapter.
From my Crutchfield order:
P/N 120869001 Universal OEM DIN Tool Pair
P/N 12040EU10 Euro antenna adapter
P/N 120701784 VW Wire harness (switch the red and yellow wires when connecting the VW harness to the new head unit harness)
Once you slide the tool in the right way, you'll hear the locking tabs release and the radio will slide out (with some help).
