Hi all,

Cool site! just found it through google.


ok so i just bought my 97 vt executive yesterday very happy cant wait to put my system in but it came with an aftermarket pionneer head unit and its stuck in there !! its a single din i can pull out the underneath part and take the cover edge thing off the head unit, but trying to pry that deck out its completely stuck in there! ive tried coathangers and searched for other posts but cant seem to find a solution.

Its most probably just wedged in there as its bloody hard to get to the sides of the cage in a vt, pretty much all car audio installers do it that way.

Yeah mate its more than likely just wedged in, get your hand in and underneath the head-unit and try to pull it out from the back of it, slowly pull with more force untill it starts to come out.

Hey mate,
if it locks in like my old one did, you need to pry one side of it accross to free the 'tangs', then pull it forward to bring the one side out a little, and do the same on the other side, its a real pain to try and do, without breaking something!!

my car may be a write off and tried to get my one out today to put the stock back in, but when they installed it they've pop riveted it into its casing then that casing into the metal frame where it slots into, cant get a screwdriver or anything inthere without really breaking something, so i just had to give up
