I can't offer you much help with the rest of the disassembly, but it certainly is
helpful to have the radio removal tool.  Fortunately, the same tool is used by Ford
(I think, though maybe GM) for some factory units so it can be gotten for fairly
cheap (~ $5) at Checker or your local run-of-the-mill auto parts store.  Some car
stereo install places have them as well and would probably give it to you or let you
just borrow it.  It just consists of two pieces of metal rod, bent into a U-shape
with a little nub on each of the 4 tips to release the radio retention tabs and grab
hold of the unit.  Good luck with the project,

Hi guys -

Well, I have the heater box disconnected at the engine wall.  Will not come
out.  Bentley says to remove console, glove box and driver side tray.  The
Bentley only addresses manual A/C with diagrams.  In typical Bentley fashion
"remove heater controls" with no illustrations for climate control.  I
assume there are controls behind the console attached to heater box which
are preventing it from coming out.  I also need to remove radio.  Will coat
hanger wire work or do I need the special VW tool?  I don't have the console
quite out yet.  perhaps it will be obvious which controls to remove if I can
see them.  Anyone have any insight into this job?  The archives seem to deal
with only 5000 and 90 models.  Any advice appreciated.

Best Regards
David Torrey
