Default Help removing a Factory Radio

I purchased a Inv for my wife for xmas . We hooked it up and the static is horrible form the FM Transmitter. I want to hardwire the FM Mod in to her factory radio, but I can't figure out how to take here Factory Radio out of the dash. I can not find out how to pop the plastics out so I can get to the radio. It is a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara. Does anyone know how to do this or where I can find a manual for tearing the dash appart? Thanks

Chris

If you plan on buying an aux adapter or FM modulator relay, I would suggest finding it at www.crutchfield.com and ordering it from them. The reason I suggest this is that they typically have very good printed instructions for your car that they include for free when you make an order. I ordered a stereo and some other sat rad stuff from them and got great instructions with pics on how to take out my radio and tear apart my doors for speakers. And if you have any problems or need more info, their tech support is second to none.

My other suggestion would be to just search the web for the info you need. You'll probably find some Suzuki newsgroup or discussion board with radio install threads that might provide some info and pics as well.

good luck!

Thank you for your response. I was able to figure out how the plastic molding comes off. I was then able to remove the 6 screws that hold the radio in place. I decided on going with a wired FM relay. I had one already so I just installed it. After putting everything back together I think I did a very nice job. The wife is happy too so it must be pretty good.

Thanks to this site I am now static free!!!!
