Thanks Alfie :

I do not know why I should Need the first wire kit that you ve sent to me since in the back of my radio I Already have the orange fiber cable connected to the radio ( see 1 st picture in my Post ); so I beleive That I Need an extension like this :
Brand New CD Changer Wiring Harness Genuine Mercedes W203/C209 - A2035403308 | eBay

For the Power cable I have no idea where is has to be connected ? is it from the CD changer to the back of the radio ? if so , should I Just unwrap the Power cables in the back of the radio and make an extension to the CD Changer ?

Thanks
 
You need the fibre extension because the fibre is a ring and you need to add a device into that ring.

The power/wake up loom is needed as your wires have all been cut. We send fitting instructions with the loom.

1st pic is the Fibre Optic cable
2nd is a Parallel port (not sure what it connects to).
3rd is the aerial.
 
If you ever get fed up with throwing money at legacy tech then I can recommend swapping it for an Android unit which will give you not only CD playback but also mp3 on CD or micro SD card, streaming from Spotify etc or from your mobile phone, up to date navigation, reversing cam etc.
