Radio Removal Key Help Needed

Hello, I just installed a sub and amp in my car but for some reason I can't seem to get the VW radio removal keys out of the radio (CD player in glove box) I have the radio pulled out still, and tried pushing on the side to remove the keys but had no success. Any suggestions on how to get these keys out? It's frustrating having a glovebox stuck open lol. Thank you

Reinstall the radio in the glove box, then hold it in place and pull out the keys.

If that doesnít work have someone help hold it while pushing in the side... then take some pliers to physically pull the key out. I bought some cheap keys on Amazon and had the same issue. Tried everything and the damn keys wouldnít come out until I used brute force.

It was unsettling but it worked. Luckily I didnít damage anything. I donít recommend this but at some point you might not have any more options. Just be sure to at least be pushing in the metal tab to try and avoid breaking anything.

Again this is a last resort desperation move. I did everything everyone said to do and my keys would not come out. No guarantees on this...

Small flathead screw driver on the side clips to pop them out. They snap right back in after you remove the keys.
