So I haven't had access to a radio for some time and was wondering if anyone could tell me how to wire my antenna so it will work with an aftermarket head unit. I don't have the antenna control switch ('91 560SEL) and wouldn't mind having a switch somewhere to raise/lower the mast. I'd like to be able to have mast down when playing Ipod/CD so I assume that requires a switch somewhere?

Anyone know which wires behind head unit connect to antenna motor? I know the large universal plug goes to mast.

Thanks

While we're talking about the antenna - is there a certain speed that you shouldn't exceed while the antenna is extended/deployed, to avoid damage?

I don't think you could get your car going that fast.

I figured the clever Germans designed it strong enough to withstand any speed the car would be going, but, better safe than sorry, right? I figured I'd ask. Thanks for clearing it up!
