The Saturn Astra was only sold for the 2008 model year; the Saturn brand was discontinued by GM shortly after the car's introduction. You'll need special tools to remove the radio from your Saturn Astra. These tools are referred to as "Radio Keys" or "Radio Hooks" and are available through any GM dealer's service or parts department. The keys are also available online and in some car audio stores. You'll be unable to remove the Astra's radio without them.

Skill level:

  1. 1

    Open the Astra's bonnet. Turn the nut on the negative battery cable with a wrench, and then detach the cable from the post.

  2. 2

    Move to the driver-side seat. Insert the first key into the left radio holes. Insert the second key into the right radio holes. Push both keys in firmly to disengage the spring clips inside.

  3. 3

    Pull the Astra's radio forward. View the back to find the two harnesses. One is for the antenna; the other is for the stereo. Unplug each harness to separate the radio.
