If I remember correctly there should be 4 holes on the face of the stereo. 1 in each corner, sort of. You need to get the removal key for your VW. It should look like somthing like a U. You should be able to pick those up at a local store. I think one time I even saw walmart had them. Another option would be to stop at a stereo shop and see if you could borrow the tool or let them take it out, but it might cost money any way. Then once you have the tool insert the keys until they click then, in a way, spread them and this should push the clips in and let you pull the radio out. Good luck.

The BUS wires are a serial data link, probably incompatible with other makes of CD player. I'd hesitate to connect it to +12v, this may cause damage. If anything try connecting it to BUS.C through a 1kohm resistor to start with.

Perhaps you need something like this to make it work. http://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-alpine-kcm-122b_p-20941.htm

There are wiring and mounting kits available from most car stereo installation stores for wiring the radio to the factory wiring...some go by the name of Scoshe and Metra kits.

Rockford fosgate installation?


The best way to install a stereo deck is go get yourself a Scoshe wiring harness. This will allow you to wire the harness directly to the stereo, then plug directly in to the OEM wiring clip that is plugged into the factory stereo. It helps if and when you sell the truck and want to put the factory stereo back in. Plus you dont have to hack up wires. Hope it helps. You can get the wiring harness from any car stereo installation or customization shop.

CD Player not working


There may be dust inside the unit on the laser. Try shoting some compressed air in the CD drive area to clean out. Also, ensure that the CD surface is clean, and try a different factory made audio CD. Sometimes CD players have problems reading "burned" CD's.

Go to your local wal-mart or radio shack and ask for a radio wiring harness adapater, it connects directly to your car wiring and there i\will be no need to cut your car wires. Best of all the harness cost less than $10.

Radio comes on but i cant hear any music


You may be connecting this stereo into an amplified system. If the original factory stereo worked with the factory amplifier, your stereo is not turning the amplifier on. If you purchased the aftermarket wire harness that mates to the factory stereo connector, hook up the "Amplifier Trigger" wire, this wire is usually blue.

Are you using the factory wires in the VW to install the stereo? You may have to re-wire the speakers and power, ground wires, etc. with new wire. In a car that old, the wires are probably in bad condition - especially where you can't see. Hope this helps...
