Hi I've got a 91 swift gl and wanting to put in a cd player, replacing the existing stock head. I've tried pull and the lot with no success. Is there a trick to this, as I'm struggling here :)
Cheers

There are 3 small screws in the black fascia/surround. Remove the fascia.
Then there are 4 larger screws holding the stereo cage in.

Undo those 7 screws and the whole unit should slide out...

I've never removed a stock head-unit, as mine was done when I bought the car, but I'm assuming it's done the same way.

Yep, I had a bloke over not long ago who was trying to pull the standard head unit out though the plastic fascia! I asked him how he thought is was going to work. His reply was "I dunno but I figure If I do it long enough it will just happen!" :lol: Funny kid.

well this has been harder than I had initially thought, to get to the facasia must I remove the whole bottom half of the dash? I can't seem to easily get to the screws on the side of the headunit, which are holding it all in.

Here is a quick picture to show all the screws to remove.


The reds need to be removed first
Then the whole fascia comes out
Behind it are 4 more (green ones)
Then the metal braqcket comes out with stereo attached
Remove the 2/4 screws on the side of that and cut/unplug wires
