LOL
Dave, it might be more efficient if you just move to the USA and open a shop. Maybe California, or even here in Utah. And if you do that, I will just deliver your parts to you....

wallyp Yes, Chattanooga is a pretty little city. You are about 90 miles from me at the moment.

Thanks for the thought!

Lesson learned - if you buy any electrical device from from a wrecking yard, get the connectors as well.
Wally, not sure if I can help, but will know shortly. I am negotiating the purchase of a 2003 S500 that is totaled, should know by Wednesday.

BTW- I am working in Chattanooga, TN through Monday, which I believe is not so far from you- nice little city.

Dave2302 Hi @wallyp ,

I would imagine, (as with all Mercedes Wiring Plugs / Terminals), that you can get what you need from the Main Dealer, which will be the 3 metal connector pins and the Plastic part of the plug ..................

Look up on WIS for "connector repair" pieces, to get the Part Numbers, should be along with the Actual CD Changer Wiring Loom, they can be a bugger to find but they should be there

HTH,

cowboyt True, they are. Nav was why I went Android. The D2B 2003 head-unit upgrade makes sense in a pre-facelift car if you either don't care about navigation, or you already have another--say, third-party--nav unit. Turns out a lot of people use cell phones over here for nav these days (e. g. Waze). Otherwise, I'd recommend going Android.

Dave2302 Hi @cowboyt ,

Agreed, the only thing I would add to that is ................... (in UK at least) ...................

The last Update Disc for the MB Navi Units is now well out of date, whereas the Androids SD Card Navi is current at purchase time
