There is a small diamond like notch at the front >of the key ... is this roughly what I am looking for? Before we start: I've not removed the radio on my '97 900 but would probably have posted a similar question in the near future (I need to get into the SID to see if I can revive the <CENSORED> dead rows and columns on the display) so the following may or may not be useful... Looking for the tools on this side of the pond I find a couple of mail-order houses whose sites show good closeups of the tool. Interestingly, the tools shown appear to have different designs at the end; the first has what is probably a locking ring cut into it (this would be consistent with another poster's comment about the tool locking into the latch so that it can be used as a handle); the other seems to be formed like a screwdriver blade with no sholder (how would it lock into place?). Anyway, the closeups may help resolve some of the uncertainty over just what tool is being represented as appropriate. http://www.drivewerks.com/catalog/shopcart/TOOL/POR_TOOL_CAT254_pg7.htm http://www.audiooutfitter.com/store/DT1.html Having said that...a Google search turned up an entry from a UK SAAB discussion in which a poster says he used a nail instead of the official removal tool "per another person's post here" -- but the search tool for the site is broken. You might want to see if this is useful for you... http://www.saabclub.co.uk/forums/ninehunner/messages/10827.shtml Good luck! Joe Morris
