2005 X3 3.0 with the anti-theft radio....

I don't have the tool - can this be done without the tool and just some coordination? If I have to get the tool - can I get it anywhere besides the dealer?

Thanks!

What tool are you referring to? GaryJ was able to remove his X3 radio without any special tools. Check the last post in this thread: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118784

Hope this helps....JL

kb, I did'nt completely remove my radio from my car. Only enough to switch the 12-pin connector. Never disconnected the power source.
