Simple.

Locate the two small flaps on either side of the oem deck.
Flip them open.
Insert an 8mm hex wrench(allen wrench works as well)
Twist counter clockwise.
Pull.

That's it. Pretty straight forward as is the wiring

I dunno. It worked for me as well as others on this thread. Did you try the hex nut or an allen wrench. The hex should deffintately work. If all else fails, try a torx bit of the same size. It really shouldn't be that hard....
