Can anyone tell me how to get the original unit out correctly without damaging anything?

Thanks.

You need the original U shaped removal tools.

4 rods eg welding rod correct size for holes will also do the trick, but remember you will need your security code if you disconnect wiring

Take a metal coat hanger cut 2 pieces and bend into u shape to fit spacing of holes, grab a pair of side cutters or just pliers and cut a circular groove right around the circumference of the ends of the wire approx 1-2 mm from the tip, shove in until you feel a little click may need a bit of jiggling but once you have freed the cathes you can get your hand in from the ashtray hole and push out.

Thanks guys, I thought those holes must have had something to do with it.

Re: AU2 Head unit removal.

you can just buy ford clips at like autozone for 5 dollars. They are more likely to not break off or bend like a coat hanger.
