    It plugs into the CD changer port in the loom, or replaces your existing CD changer if you have one. If you have an 07 car or later then it should plug into the quadlock, if it's an earlier car you should have mini ISO plugs to deal with. It's very simple to operate, pressing CD number 1 to 5 on the headunit gives you the first 5 alphabetical playlist, CD6 gives you every track on your iPod.

    You've got the wrong kit. You need 8E0051444B for Quadlock Connector Radios.

    If it has a 'flying' ground lead these normally have to be connected to the radio chassis too.
