Correct radio removal tool..

I plan on relocating my radio and HVAC unit to the upper two compartments. I searched Pelican site and came up with two different items. Is this the correct tool for a 2002 base Boxster with a CDR220 unit installed? I saw bunch on Amazon but not sure of the quality.

Thank you!

I bought some amazon/eBay $2.00 ones and they are fine. Probably no difference between those and the ones for $15.00

Same here. Got mine at Walmart, worked perfectly. Quality doesn't matter much as it's not a hard operation, a little pull and it's done.

Thank you fellas, I'll just order from Amazon. The ones at Pelican stated Mercedes, Audi, and various model numbers. The ones at Amazon say they're made for Porsche.

Thanks again.

My Radio was a pain

I tried for two days to get my OEM radio out....turns out the previous owner had spilled some soda and it was stuck. I went to a Audio shop and asked them to just get it free....they guy had it out in 30 seconds....I had tried on and off for two days. I asked him how much and he said do not worry about it...I gave him a $10 and said thanks buy some lunch.
