Default Remove OE Head Unit From Swift Zxi

Please let me know the step by step process of removing OE head unit from the SWIFT ZXI.

I just need to look inside the Head Unit.

Also please shed light on how do I remove the the clock console in the Swift Dashboard.

From the above question,do you mean a DIY stuff.
Please elaborate the purpose also.That is what are you looking for in the OE HU.

IMO its better to get to a mechanic or a ICE installer to open up the OE HU.

YES Please DIY. The reason I need to look inside the HU is that I am trying to get a worldspace installed in my car. More details on worldspace is in this link; http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...ace-swift.html (Worldspace In Swift)

After searching the internet I got a document for swift service manual, the document illustrates methods to remove each part from SWIFT. Google for this file and you would be able to get hold of it. It is a 40+ MB file, thus cannot upload it here.

YES, if you have the complete OE head unit with the dash kit then its a 2 minute job.
if not then you need to buy a dash kit from M.A.S.S

The OE stereo and the ACC are two separate units. The HU and a small panel above it are separate from the part of the fascia housing the ACC. Pics of the HU and the plastic panel above it:

Question How to remove OEM Stereo/Console of 2011 Swift?

Can some one tell me how i can remove the dashboard console/OEM stereo of the 2011 Swift? Which panel to take off first and are there any screws to un do before i try to pull the panel off?

I'd like to install the Alpine CDA117 HU which i removed from my AStar onto my new 2012 Swift. So if i can manage to get the console out i can try installing it.
