    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fuller instructions needed on product packaging Bought this item to remove the audio unit (radio & CD combined) from my Puma 1.7 (2002) as new battery fitted and security code had to be used. Alas incorrect number supplied by Ford dealer when car bought many years ago. I needed serial number to get correct code. They keys were not really wide enough for this unit but eventually clicked into place. Following instructions I pulled the keys forward - nothing would move apart from one side of the unit's facia. After 15 minutes I gave up as all attempts just left me with the device in place and the keys in my hands. I was doing more damage as a complex retaining device fell out of the dash! I returned to the website and searched other reviews for help. Thanks must go to "stusax" of Cheltenham (posted 01/11/2014) who described how to use they keys properly. The unit is now out. So for best practice his comments are replicated here " Put them into the holes either side of the radio.CD, push them outwards then pull towards you."

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Needed to remove car radio from a Renault Clio and halfords was the only place I could find the tool to buy the same day, so thank you Halfords :) although I think the price is a bit steep for what they are.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful!!! Bought these to remove my radio cdr 2005 from my 52 Vauxhall corsa sxi, they didnt work they were useless bent when i put them. When i got them in and went to pull out the radio the only thing that came was the keys, which after 5 attempts have rounded off. Seriosly don't waste your money you'd be better off using a coat hanger.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product works well and the price is reasonable The tools works well for my Ford CD player. It was very easy to use. I recommend this tool. And very easy to order from Halford online and pick up an hour later at the store.... no need to wait.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked as required Picked these up from my local Halfords as needed them in a hurry to remove a car stereo. Product felt a bit flimsy but no issues with using them as a one off tool. Staff i store were helpful and the overall service and communication was good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Audio Release Tool This item was in stock when needed so I could remove a stereo unit from my car before it was scrapped! There are 2 tools in the pack and they are well made / sturdy and did the job. The tools are slightly differently shaped than the photo -- at the top the metal angles in more to allow a finger to fit.
