Right, so that's where I'm at at as of a couple of days ago

I've got busy in the Workshop this week with pesky customer work, so play has had to stop for a while

I've been fiddling and setting the H/U up how I want it, it is all configured nicely, and using the "mixing palette" I have got the H/U Button Illumination to match perfectly with the Cars Switches etc, I'll try grab a pic in the dark later If I can get one that isn't blurred I'll pop it in here

The Active Sub will be here this week, so hopefully get that installed v soon, also the 'Sub Loom' for the Heated Seats should be here soon so I can get that done at the same time and get the back half of the centre console and the front left Dash Trims fitted back in and start using the Car again

I also bought one of these 'panel mount' twin USB Data Ports :-

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1m-2m-Car...53.m2749.l2649 .............. as there is currently 3 USB Ports unused on the back of the H/U, so by fitting the Socket in the Centre Console Armrest box I can plug in a USB Internet SIM Dongle and also use anything else such as USB Stick to transfer files etc etc

I might add DAB Radio on the final H/U USB port at a later date, but not important right now, as DAB is a pretty sketchy signal where I live

I will also be putting a USB Charger unit similar design in the R170 to plug the phone etc in when charging. I have the Chargers in the W220 but will also add the USB Data Ports as well to that Car

I'll be back soon with some more pics once the Sub is in

Cheers for now,

Lookin' good there, Dave. Now all you've got to do is move the steering wheel back to the correct side! :-D

Thumbs up

I really like the colour scheme you picked - carbon fibre trim and a large screen android head unit - looks great ... but then, I might be somewhat biased

Hi David,

/\ /\ /\ Very Nice, I like that, and the "total touch screen" lack of buttons looks well in the later model Car

Was that H/U built to fit the dash, or did you have to mod the sides to get a nice fit ? That was a very brutal part of my install, I wasn't sure that I wouldn't totally wreck the unit due to the amount of plastic I had to shave off it to make it fit the R170's Console, but the H/U was relatively cheap, so I figured it was worth a shot to get the look I wanted .................

You see there are a fair few R170's done with Double DIN Units, but those that know me will know I like to push the boundaries with my Cars, but always go for "Factory fit" looking improvements

Wait until I get to doing the V8 install, that will have to be 100% working with all the other systems, all on MB ECU's ................ Got it all sussed out already though, that is why I chose a V6 Car to do

There are a few R170's that have M113 fitted, but the owners always started with 4 Cylinder Cars, and cannot get them working in harmony for various reasons !!

Thanks

My install is relatively simple, comparing to yours, and since I know nothing about mechanical stuff, all my mods are pretty superficial: ambient lights, dual function DRLs, side camera (i'm rather precious about my wheels LOL), etc ... Retrofitted a few factory options too - illuminated door sills, electrochromic RVM, boot power socket, and so on.

The Erisin head unit above I fitted in August 2017, it is 169/245 specific, so just slot into place, with CANbus decoder and QuadLock included in the kit - everything works as before - from steering wheel controls, to factory subwoofer in the spare wheel, to continuing playback, until the key is removed or the driver's door is open.

Hi,

Yes my W220 Erisin install was comparatively very easy, just more add ons, because that Head Unit was specific to W220 Dash and CAN Bus, and that Car has CAN Bus on Steering Wheel Buttons

The R170 does have at least 1 CAN for Powertrain, but I'm not 100% whether it has a Body CAN as well, or if H/U will talk to the protocols that are used on R170 ....................

I have no Steering Wheel Controls on the standard R170 Steering Wheel, but have a C Class W203 Steering Wheel with Buttons, that will fit the Car. Need to do a ton of searching WIS Wiring Diagrams for CAN Bus on both the R170 and W203 Cars and then probably have to build a Steering Angle Sensor / Clockspring Squib out of parts from both cars, to get extra wire cores, then get a W203 Steering Column Module, plus chopped wiring with correct plugs, then finally hope and pray the CAN Protocols are the same between the 2 Cars

The Steering Wheel I bought was also available with Paddle Shifters, so I may decide to add those as well at the same time

TBH I can't see MB re writing all their older CAN Protocols as models progressed, which gives me hope that I'll eventually get it all running on CAN bus

I just don't have a whole spare time day to trawl all the wiring diagrams right now

So atm, all Head Unit Functions are hard wired via the "SWC etc" Harness supplied with the H/U, but yeah, the H/U has a CAN Decoder built in and designed to work with C Class W203

Fingers are well and truly crossed

Well after a horrendous and very busy 2 weeks da SLK is back in da building.

Close of play Seats are out, Console and under Dash Trims etc all out, and the Fuse Box is all in bits.

It has until Monday night in da Workshop, will get as much done as I can .......................

Heated Seat Sub Loom has to go from Fuse Box to Right Seat, and then across back of Heater with Main Loom, then to Switch Panel and Earth Point, and then on to Left Seat !!

Amplifier Power Lead, Earth and Wake Up have all got to go from Fusebox and H/U to Rear of Console area, above which will be mounted the Active Sub

Once that is done, if time allows, then the GPS Antenna needs final mounting, I think it will be under the Dash Top Panel on top of the HVAC box

The Hands Free Mic also needs final mounting, this will be mounted in the OEM location in the Interior Dome Light, (in actual fact I am going to see if the H/U likes the original MB Mic first), the MB wiring needs splicing into the special H/Free Mic Plug that came with the ERISIN H/U.

Finally re fit all parts previously removed !!

Will report back how it's all progressing
