Hi All,

Can anyone send me a picture of a Can-bus adaptor or know where I can get one from to install a canbus Comand unit into my non canbus CLK W208?

Can't seem to find one anywhere (well, not if I can't speak German anyway!)

Many thanks

Guy

Hi Guy

It just so happens that I have a photo of one ...

Does that help? The connectors are a standard C1 and C2.

Cheers

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for that, look forward to hearing all about how to connect it from you after you undertake the install.

All the best

guy's these things are great ;) but if you use the c2 connector for the can bus adapter then if you later add a cd changer you have already used the connector. Just be aware

It's not a problem just means you have to add wires to the same pins.

You mean C1 dont you Kenny? ;)

I would say it was far easier to soldera connection to the leads coming out of the C1 connector rather than the bigger hassal of trying to add 2 wires to one pin! belive me its a real pain getting those pins out of the C1 without breaking the clips . The C2 (larger 18 way) on the other hand is a doddle to separate . But I still wouldnt try to fit 2 wires into 1 pin.

Check out Franks Miata website for the pin outs click on my other car
