plasma cutter. hehe. na, go to the dealership and see if they will let you use one for two seconds then go home and finish the project, or go to a local shop and see if they are cool enough to let you use on really quick just to pop it out on the spot. what are you putting in the V dub?

There is no other way to take the deck out. If you take it to VW they have all the deck keys and will take it out for free! Also check your new deck to see if it has a set of keys, if they are the same size it should work.

i'm using the stock h/u. and its not my car (its someone elses), and i got that image from google. i guess i'll have to do that. will most car dealerships have them?

Can't you just pick those keys up at your local Wal-mart, Target, and or Audio Store for like $3 tops? or what?

i dont think a key for an aftermarket deck would work but that is just me. they usually just catch somewhere on the chassis of that one deck.

you can buy them @ Autozone. i got the removal tools for the Ford deck's a few years ago, i think they cost me like $4

i have 2 sets of those radio removal keys.. so if u drive cross country 2 my cc i'll take ur radio out haha... but yeah drop by a dealership or a cc or bb and ask if u can borrow their keys or they can take it out for you for like $5

and please dont' use a coat hanger.. i've seen so many ford/bmw/vw radios that have the spring clips bent out so bad you have to disassemble the radio to get them out because people use coat hangers and stuff to try and get it out... and they just screw the clips up...
