How do I install the aux port? and do I have the option to?

Hello guys proud new owner of an 07 fiat grande punto active 1.2 just purchsed yesterday, and new to these forums. On the surface of the dashboard there is no aux functionality. However I have been hearing in forums there is an aux option on the dahsboard and you need to pull the radio out and install it that way? Im not sure if mine has this option however and i didnt go into the settings on the radio etc, does anyone know if my specific model has the functionality?
cheers

Your radio has AUX ability, they just don't come with it by default if it's the stock Blaupunkt and comes up with AUX when you press CD, you're in luck!

Someone was asking this not a couple of weeks ago, this might help.
AUX/USB possibility? Non blue&me 56 reg

Mines unbranded too, not sure if it wore off or only certain models had it displayed.

If it looks like this mate, you're fine same one as me, except black not silver.

Edit Just noticed you've posted in the Abarth section. No idea how I ended up here lol, but is yours Abarth? Didn't realise there was a 1.2 Abarth Punto :P Instructions should still work if it is!

Looks about right mate. Can't fully remember what the connector looked like, I'll jimmy my radio out and have a look at some point.

Be aware there are some fakes and incompatible ones swimming around, where the pin slots are reversed. I hear you can modify them ones so they will still work, just a bit of a pain. The guide in the post I linked touched upon that I believe.

That's the weird bit is getting the cable out. I pulled mine down and out through the gap between the cup holder and the central panel, but I couldn't see anything so I'm hoping to god I didn't knock anything! Otherwise if the cable is thin enough you could have it come out the side of the stereo.
