    Hiya all

    Just bought myself a Parrot Bluetooth handsfree thingy form Halfrauds. I got all the needed cabling etc. But obviously being Halfrauds, they couldn't fit it for light years, that combined with me being impatient, decided to embark on the installation myself.

    Sooooo, how the hell do you remove the head unit? I had a crowbar and sledge hammer positioned to do the job, but thought I'd ask here first :D

    Oh, it's an Audio 20

    Any form of help/pointers will be greatly appreciated :)

    Cheers

    Gently prise up gear lever surround.
    Pull wood/aliminium trim up to reveal front of ash tray.
    Unclip ash tray at the front, remove ashtray.

    Undo the two screws holding in the motorised Cd changer/trinket tray. Disconnet Cd/power cables if any. Remove trinket tray/cD changer.
    Underneath are two screws that go vertically up.
    Undo these as far as they will go. the dont actually come out just undo them.

    Head unit pulls out.

    5 minutes;)

    I just had one of these fitted by Halfords - although admittedly I was referred to the specific guy in a specfic Store to do it and they added a connecting kit from connect2 which means I can use the steering wheel controls for the bluetooth - v cool a complete stealth integration (although the dash display doesn't display the numbers the buttons do work. - Audio 20.

    the whole lot cost about £150 -bargain
