The installer is splicing into the 'harness adapter', not the harness. Car companies will have an issue if the harness is tampered with, but not the harness adapter which is a part that costs 100-200.

No, the harness is never changed. The alternate method, which involves slightly more work, is to crimp the wire to the LOC, along with the speaker wire to a new pin, which replaces the existing pin in the harness adapter connector (harness side, not HU side). This is the elegant method, which lazy installers ignore for the splice-and-tape method.

DerAlte Sir, it seems you have misunderstood my reply. I meant that now that the wires from the harness have been spliced, there exists no workaround this procedure to avoid warranty issues.

Also, my i20 has the elegant install method.

Now that you say it like that, no, the deed is already done. The alternative is creating a adapter cable between harness and HU (connectors are available in the market), removing the splice, and interposing the adapter cable between harness and HU.
