If you ask your stealership parts dept to check your VIN on their EPC it will tell them if you have a cable from the factory or not. They can also tell you which stickers you have tooOriginally posted by GregE240
It would have been a hell of a lot easier if MB had stuck a bloody great sticker on it that said "CD-ChangerKable" or something, believe me.
Yes but if the dealer fitted a Sony headunit and changer, there would be wiring in the car for the changerOriginally posted by fuzzer
No , the sonys and blaupunkts was dealer fit . The only units that come from the factory are the mercedes units.

Does anyone know how to get through the rear firewall and into the boot? Is there a smiliar gromet type thing like the front?

What firewall?? theres a bl**dy great hole from the boot over the nearside wheel arch which lets you into the rear cabin at the side of the seatback! There are losts of cables passing thru here. on my 1999 W210
The route I took was to run from the nearside boot, the (designated place for the CD changer) over the wheel arch which runs down into the rear sill along the front sill round the edge of the passenger footwell behond the carpet that joint sthe centre console to the dash & bingo up yu pop behind the head unit. means taking of a lot of trim and I sometimes pop out the rear seat as well - makes removing the trim up the side of the seat back easier.
