    Audi TT 8J (2006-) Stereo Removal

    In this guide, I will explain how to remove the standard stereo from a Audi TT 8J (2006-Present). Removing the stereo is fairly straight forward, the hardest part is finding exactly which lead you will require, as there are a number of different systems, from full standard, to half amplified, and full amplified systems. The easiest way to figure out what system you have is by removing the stereo, and seeing how many speaker wires (if any) you have coming out of the back of the stereo.

    Standard Stereo & Car

    Recommended Tools*

    • 4x PC5-132  Release tools ARE required


    • You will NOT need a code for the stereo when connecting back up.
    • If you are changing to a new stereo, you will require a fascia.
    • If you are fitting a Hands Free Kit (Parrot/Motorola) you will require either an SOT-1003HB (if Half Amplified) or SOT-1003FB (if fully amplified)
    • You will need to find an ignition source, this can be found at the cigar lighter.


    Using the removal tools suggested above, place the tools in the 4 holes with the indents of the removal tools facing INWARDS towards the middle of the stereo.
     Using the release tools, pull the stereo out towards you. This will slide the stereo out. Be careful of the airbag wire which is also attached to the underside of the stereo.
