Suzuki Grand Vitara (99-05) Stereo Removal

This is a how to guide on removing the standard Suzuki Grand Vitara MK1 stereo in a 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara. You may be doing this to fit a hands free kit or the likes. Your stereo should look like the stereo below

Recommended Tools*

*Note above are general tools you should have when doing this type of job, but you may not need them, see tutorial for exact tools needed

Information

  • If you are changing to a new stereo, you will require a PC2-68-4
  • If you are fitting a Hands Free Kit (Parrot/Motorola) you will require a SOT-071

Steps

1. With your Philips, look under the fascia (below the heater controls) and you’ll see two screws

2. Once you have removed the two screws, pull the fascia out (you may need to run your Bojo tool around the fascia to release it)

3. You will then see 4 screws holding the stereo in place (Two in the top and two in the bottom of the stereo)

  5. RickGove says:

    When I do this, the left side of the fascia will not come out far enough to pull the stereo out? Can you advise me on how to get it to come out further?

    • Rick,

      The whole fascia needs to come off to remove the stereo as there are 4 screws holding the stereo in place.

      The fascia is just held in by two screws and pop clips, you may need to wiggle it a little bit to get the fascia out.
