Wish I knew, all I can say, after three years, my radio in my 2006 Optra wagon stopped working. It got replaced just before that part of the warranty expired. But,that replacement radio has just stopped working after some eight months and now I'm shit out of luck. I'm still making payments on this car and don't have a working radio. I could either go to a dump site and pick up a radio from a 50 year old rusted vehicle or spend $250 for a basic radio/cd player.

Using a dull kitchen knife, stick it on a any side of a silver part and dash board and try to pry toward to middle radio side from one and then from other till you hear click because it has 2 catchers from each side, when you disattach a silver panel with all staff on the buttom(AC and vent ) still connected. Push down top vents to get them with attached silver plate and pry it to create about 2inches separation from dashboard. then using screwdriver unscrew 4 holding bolts and see what you going to do next....
