    Homemade Din Tool

    I did a search and didnt find anything. Heres my questions is possible to make your own universal DIN Tool because all it really is wire u-shaped. Any suggestions for making own perhaps cloths hanger wire



    What do I do? Iím a bodybuilder & yeah, itís a job. Only the day doesnít start at 9 & it wonít end at 5. It starts from the time I open my eyes to the time I shut them. Itís not a 5 day work week. I live it 24/7... This is a job. This is my life

    I guess you are talking about removing a stock Ford HU?
    If so, yes, a coat hanger bent int a "U" will work fine. Done it many times.

    Re: Homemade Din Tool

    most Fords, some older porsches, some older VWs and audis use the din tool with the U-shape to it.

    Most VWs from about 98+, mercedes, audis, and for the most part german cars use a tool that is flat and comes to a point with a notch before the end.

    Most BMWs up until about 2002 use a key that is a 5 or 6 point (I can't remember) that looks like an allen wrench. I usually just use a 2.5mm allen to get it out.

    Most other manufacturers do not use keys, rather the radio is removed by taking off the bezel in front, and removing screws that hold in the radio.

    Re: Homemade Din Tool

    Carefully pry the panel around the radio off. Then, unscrew the 4 screws. Done.
