Works but directions are wrong

Written By MattV, Atlanta, GA on Tuesday, May 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The directions showing which end to use for a specific application are wrong. I had to go searching on the internet to find the correct shape for my 04 Jetta, and then the tool worked ok. Problem was in trying to follow the directions I bent one of the clips in the radio and had to resort to alternate removal instructions anyway.

Pros: Came with purchase and will do the job if you ignore the included instructions.

Cons: Included instructions are plainly WRONG.

Metra 86-9001 Factory Radio Removal Tools

Written By finalcut3, Plainfield, IL on Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Worked just fine to remove the factory stereo in my 2002 Jetta. Unfortunately, I had a 4" factory stereo, which required 4 tools to remove. Crutchfield only sent 2. Luckily, the part of the tool labeled "For Mercedes applications" also worked. I cut those spokes off with a hacksaw and was able to remove the stereo.

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: Not enough tools were sent to remove the factory stereo.

Great tools!

Great product

Written By Kaspa7, Durham, NC on Tuesday, June 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The custoner service tech who helped me order my JVC KD-R650 head unit advised me to get this item. It was absolutely necessary for installing this head unit in my 1995 Mercedes C280. It simplified the wiring a LOT by providing 4 RCA jacks that connected to the left/right, front/rear speaker outputs of the head unit. Sure beats having EIGHT MORE wires to splice into the car's wiring harness. Two of the connectors from the car's wiring harness plug into this adapter. There is no way to connect them incorrectly! The head unit is supplied with a wiring harness that matches the Metra adapter. The eight speaker wires were not used, as the RCA plugs took care of that. There were only 5 wires to connect. Match them color-to-color and you can't go wrong.

Pros: Simple and easy installation. Very little room for error. If you can match 5 colored wires on this adapter to the same 5 colored wires from the radio, you can't.won't do anything wrong. Worked perfectly as soon as I powered up the unit.

Cons: None. Everything with the installation went perfectly.

You REALLY need these. It's the only time I've ever been able to remove a factory Monsoon system on the first try!!! Be gentle and deliberate when using them though. They are a bit flimsy.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been installing car stereos for quite a while, so I already have a collection of radio keys, but these came with the kit from Crutchfield, so now I have another. These actually seem to be a little better quality than the last set I got. The metal seems a little thicker. Anyway, they did what they were supposed to and I didn't have to dig in my tool box since they came with the kit. I'm happy.

Pros: Effectively free with radio purchase Quality material

Cons: None

Very tricky

Written By Hunter, Baton Rouge, LA on Sunday, November 10, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They fit, but it's very easy to insert too far into the slots and bend the small levers they clip to. They also have sharp edges, so wear gloves if you use them. The dealership uses a plate with keys attached to insure a proper angle. If you bend the levers, you'll have to remove the dash to pull the VW head unit out so I highly suggest you bring the car to the dealership and have the techs pull the head unit for you.

Pros: They work when inserted properly.

Cons: Sharp edges and easy to insert too far.

Cons: NA

Works as expected

Written By JJ, Charlottesville, VA on Friday, August 02, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The tools work great, and i would give it 5 stars, but I think the manufacturer could stand to smooth the edges on these so they don't scratch as easily. One false move and BANG a nice little scratch in what ever it touches. Other than that, they work exactly as expected. ***Note, they cannot be removed until the radio is pulled as you have to manually press the tabs back in to remove the tools. At that's how it has to be done on an Audi.

Pros: Works as expected. The start design gives you something to pull on to remove the radio as there is really not much to grab hold of on these radios.

Cons: Sharp edges. Carefully of cuts and scratches on anything you might touch with them. Keep them in plastic during storage so they don't damage anything around them.

I used this tool with my Volkswagen beetle monsoon radio. It was a little hard to take out but finally managed after a lot of tugging. You may need another person to take out radio so one person can pull on the tools while the other pulls from the cassette.

This removal tool is a good idea and it will get your foreign car's radio out, but the stamped metal design of these are bad. They have sharp edges and I cut my finger pretty good getting my radio out.

Da tool

Something so simple totally made the install a breeze! If you've never used anything like this before, read the directions. They are thin because they have to be. With that said, be careful because the edges can be sharp. If you're using them correctly they are more than strong enough... If they are bending, you're doing it wrong

Pros: This tool is invaluable!

Cons: May have sharp edges

Read the directions. Saw some goof ball on You Tube use these wrong. If you spend less than a minute reading the directions you will have no problems. WEAR GLOVES when using these. They are cheap and will cut you if you're not careful.

Pros: Free and do the job.

Cons: Poorly made and universal.
