Ah, seek and ye shall find. This is just what I am looking for.

I picked up a new blootueth phone kit today off a mate and obviously would like it to mute the stereo when in use.
Does anyone know whether the mute wire should be taken high or low to activate the function?

*bump*

Or for that matter, how to even get to the wiring? I can't see how the stock stereo comes out.
If the wiring loom came out somewhere else I could access the mute wire, that would be good too.

if you scroll all the way down to the pictures, it should tell you where the bolts are at. and only use the first picture in the link.
