Re: removal of standard subaru/philips stereo

just pop the covers off to the side of the unit and use the "U" shaped removal pins that can be bought from any decent audio stockist

I just used 4 drill bits to remove mine(or anything thin enough to go into the holes),

then found the u shaped tools in the glove box about 3 months later
