    I'm about to fit a Nokia hands-free kit in my SE, which is straightforward done the bog-standard way. However, I would like to get the phone to play through the radio speakers.

    All the sources I've found say you need a very fancy (£40) lead that fits into the ISO connectors (which I haven't got). It's going to be a maze of bullet connections.

    I can see why a fancy lead would be required to have it playing through all the speakers at once. But could I do a simple job just using the front right hand speaker, by simply joining the speaker outputs from the Nokia kit to the front RH outputs from the radio? Or would the current from one damage the other? I'll be using the radio muting feature.

    why not get a Mercedes telephone console with a built in speaker? You can fit the nokia car kit into the console and all youll need is one lead to the stereo to mute it!!

    Yes, it was the Dashmount leads I'd seen, and a few other sources. But it looks like a pain, because they don't have one specifically for the W126 and it would mean loads of cutting and joining (and maybe some guessing&#33<img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>

    I think I'll use the Nokia speaker for the time being, but just sling it under the seat rather than fix it in. Then I'll do a bit more digging, and see if I can find (or make) a filter to make sure the current can only flow in the direction of the speaker and not back towards the radio or car kit.

    Koolvin. Thanks for the pic - looks like a very neat solution - but I don't think they do one of those for a W126 either!

    Malc,

    why not drop the EBay seller (cherrypicker2@btopenworld.com) a mail with details of car and head unit etc - he may be have something to suit.

    Dave.

    The mercedes OEM console for the W203 requires most of the dashboard to come out and took me the best part of a day to do.

    try dashmount for a console. and no the steering wheel controls will not work unless you start and buy the mercedes controllers etc and then begin to plumb them into the D2b.

    Is there a MB kit for the Nokia phone that integrates with the audio and steering control?
    has anyone done it? Would like to know more about it.
    Thanks

    Yes there is...for the Nokia 5110, 6110, 6210, 6310(i)...installed this kit in several cars (mostly pre wired US cars) and am currently installing one on a non pre wired Dutch 1998 W202 C220CDI (with MF steering wheel and cluster :D ).
