Hey everyone, I have a 1996 C280 sport, and I bought a Pioneer Premier headunit and a wire harness. I've been trying to look this up, but I can't seem to find it.. does the factory head unit just pop out? Or what precautions should I take to not damage it? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

$20? That's a lot! Check on ebay. Search for "mercedes radio removal keys." I bought mine for my year 2000 E320 for $5. Don't forget to check if it is compatible with your car. I'm not sure if all the years uses the same key.

Keep in mind too, I'm not sure if every wire harness is this way, or I just got a screwed up one, but when you splice everything together, if you notice that every time you turn your car/radio off and back on everything get reset. Then you gotta go switch Red and Yellow wires.


Anyone else encounter this or was this just a bad harness??
