A tip for anyone removing a radio RRS pre facelift 2005-2009

Just a little tip to save anyone the extra work having to remove the centre console and climate control panel if you want to get your radio out.
There are two lugs each side of the radio, and also a lug on the underside which fits into a hole on the top of the climate panel.
The usual process is to remove the trim that is each side of the radio as one piece whereby the pesky metal clips invariably fall off and into the dash black hole, which then exposes the 6 screws that need to be removed, two for the hazard switch panel, and 4 for the radio itself.
After removing the screws and the switch panel, it is difficult to remove the radio because of these lugs and the known method is to then remove the centre console so that the climate panel screws can be removed enabling the radio to be removed together with the climate panel.
The lugs either side of the radio panel are just long enough to stop the radio being lifted out of the climate panel so with a dremal, carefully shave off a couple of mm from these two lugs. This enables the radio to be lifted enough to disengage from the climate panel, saving a load of grief of having to remove the centre console and all the disconnecting plugs etc this entails.
Hope this helps someone Thumbs Up
