I have no idea. I'm sure that you used the search function and found nothing and then checked in the stereo section FAQ and found the removal diagram posted for the 92-94 Swift didn't work for your car either ;). its there you just have to find it :P.

You know thermite would loosen up the mounting bezel too ;). Rather easy to make as well...heat the bezel with thermite and gently pop the radio out with a couple of tablespoons of tannerite.








I pity the day somebody takes this advice

i have found that the easiest way to get a radio out of a 92 metro is to leave the car parked in my driveway for a week or so. the neighborhood kids will have it out in a jiffy. :roll:

Come on, guys - help the guy out!

The Crutchfield instructions are pretty good about how to remove the trim. For the '92 model, there is another screw behind the stereo holding it place. If you stuff your head against the firewall, you might be able to see it (it's dead-center on the back of the stereo) attached to a crossmember. Get a short screwdriver and take it out. I don't recommend putting it back.

Later all!
