Thanks for this, exactly what ive been looking for. I dont suppose you'd know the type of adapter necessary to connect the suzuki plug to an after market stereo? Thanks again for the guide!

Here is one sold under the type code CT20SZ02. Looks like this type of connector is used in a lot of recent Suzuki models, so they should be available from other stores (using other names).

Absolutely brilliant guide. Thanks. Had to purchase a different harness adaptor for my 14 alto sz3. It says on the packet the harness is for Honda Acc 9/98> but this fits and works 100%. Available from Halfords it is item PC2-68-4. Once again many thanks for the guide.

Thanks Jossef Harush for such a detailed guide. It really helps me a lot but at last due to some reasons the connection cable tear out and I have to reach out Gomechanic team for the replacement with a genuine wire. Love their service as well as your guide too.

Thanks so much for this guide.

We have removed the screws on the head unit but it will not pull out at all, it seems completely stuck. Any suggestions on how to remove it or something we are missing?
