Thumbs up Stoopid CDR23 Radio Trick

Yesterday I got stoopid and reversed the keys trying to pull the unit out. I know this because the right key wouldn't lock and that's when I noticed it said "Left side up."

The left side actually released using the right side key, but I could not remove the key. So I compounded the problem and worked the left key into the right side and successfully removed the radio.

So now the question: Will force work to free the keys after I push the radio back in?

Never mind! The answer was they come out just as if I'd put them in correctly. You just have to push the releases a bit harder.

I'm going to color code the keys before I screw this pooch again.
