What do you exactly mean? Did you hook up a tape adapter to the black connector w/ blue cables? if so can you point exactly which adapter and include some pictures?I checked my 2004 and had the same black connector w/ blue cables as the OP.... So I bought a phillips tape adapter from Wal-Mart ($9.99) and it works perfect! The cable is thin enough so that the display closes w/o issue, and it sounds great.
Negative, I have the standard tape deck (Becker or Alpine) with the 6 cd changer in the glove box.What do you exactly mean? Did you hook up a tape adapter to the black connector w/ blue cables? if so can you point exactly which adapter and include some pictures?

At MB of Austin I usually deal with John though all the parts people are very nice.
Once you've got the part, let me know, I'm emailing you right now.
The best way to tell is to pull the plastic door trim off the bottom part that says M-B and dig around for the white connector.
If your system goes to AUX then you *should* be able to install it without issue that is if you do not already have an aux input.
Have you checked the glove box to see if you already have one? Open the glove box, look on the right panel, you might see the connector or if not a cutout (look with a nice bright flashlight) that can be punched out to accommodate the connector.
If you bought it used I'd check under the ash tray and inspect the whole console area to make sure the previous owner didn't install something somewhere else.
It seems that some 2007's have it and some don't. Guess we got the short end of the stick. I found this post and hope its helpful for you.I also have a 2007 C280 (manufactured in May 2006). I also can't find that connector. My car has the phone pre-wired in to the center console. I've looked in the glove compartment, I've opened the side trim below the A-pillar, I've looked under the drivers and passenger seats... no where to be see. All the wires and connectors are plugged in to various connectors/devices. There are no open [white] connectors anywhere.
Kotomi328, what does this single row, 5-pin, black connector (with only 2 blue wires leading to it) cable do? Is this an aux cable connection? I do not have a white connector aux cable neither and would like to connect a female aux cable through the glove box. I have a 2007 MB C280.I have a 2007 c230 and have seen where others take apart the passenger door sill and find a white 4 pin harness to plug in the aux input cable that runs into the glovebox. I find absolutely nothing except a black harness. Im not real sure what to do now? All I want to do is hook my ipod up to the car without having to pay an arm and a leg for the actual ipod kit.
