I'm trying to replace my stock head unit with a new Alpine, but so far I'm drawing dead on the unique five-sided DIN tool. Anyone close to Fairfax have one I could borrow for five minutes?

Thanks,
Steve

Since the actual tool seems to be non-existent, anyone have suggestions for tools that will sort-of-work in its place?

Thanks,
Steve

I pulled the stock radio out of my '89 325i parts car with just a slightly smaller hex key (found one of my set that fit in, and turned). The bolts aren't that tight.

If you still need it and don't mind driving to gaithersburg, I have the tool. I'll be glad to get the radio out for you.

Alternatively, you can use a small flat screwdriver.
