Installing Input



I began by removing the part by the gear stick and handbrake (not sure what itís called!)

First of all remove the bit surrounding the handbrake (give it a squeeze and it should just pop out)



Then remove the leather bit around the gear stick (again it just pops out) if you look in the area where the gear stick is you should see a wire for the cigarette lighter, this just pops out at the bottom.




Remove all the nuts securing the tray bit in place (there is a couple in the foot wells!)





Remove the tray, flip it over and drill through! (I used a 7mm drill bit but check with the size of your input) dab some super glue around the base of the tray where your hole is and pop the input lead into place.





Now put the tray back into place. Donít forget to leave the red/white leads hanging in the passenger foot well, this'll allow you to easily connect and disconnect.

Thanks Cadabena, DlightSwitch thanked for this post

Re: fitted Aux input

Thanks for the useful guide! Just done this myself, although I made the electronics a little easier and just got the Blaupunkt - 3.5mm lead from eBay to go straight into the metal female - female that I epoxy-resin'ed to the centre console. Quite pleased with the results if I may say so!

Re: fitted Aux input

Just came on to write a guide on this, then realized you'd done one I did mine exactly the same, including the rca connection in the passenger foot well. However due to using the screw type of 3.5mm socket, I had to spend a good 20 minutes sanding the center console to be thin enough

Re: fitted Aux input

Not sure if I'm just being thick but why do I need to be able to disconnect it?

Can it not be left in permanently?

Thanks, Alex

Re: fitted Aux input

A few reasons:

1. Kept getting caught when closing the glovebox (sooner or later would have broken the cable)

2. If the end breaks you only need to replace the 3.5mm male-male, not the whole expensive Blaupunkt connection

3. Use any length/angled end 3.5mm cable you want

4. Looks so much more professional! Will probably add £100 on resale just for saying it has an aux input

Re: fitted Aux input

hi
I have a 2006 gp sporting with the usb media centre in the glovebox. Does this mean that this media centre will be using the space for the aux lead to go in or is the media centre plugged in in a different slot


cheers

Re: fitted Aux input

Thanks for posting the guide. I've just done this on my daughter's car. I went for the fitted socket - in the same place as Cadabna and Willmott1992. There were a couple of small variations though>

1. I used this lead for the back of the radio for £6.50:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3606973607...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

2. I used this lead for the centre console because it's a screw-locking female 3.5mm receptacle:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3015748225...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

3. I used one of these to connect the two together:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4004193750...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I didn't take the centre console out, I pulled the gear lever gaiter off and already had the radio out to fit the lead to the back of it. I was able to drill the centre console with a 6mm drill in-situ, drop the lead down from the radio slot, reach up the gear lever hole to grab it and push the socket up from underneath.

Re: fitted Aux input

Sorry for bringing up an old post.

Help! I bought an AUX in cable that you plug into the back of the radio unit. And plugged it into the back but nothing is happening. What am I doing wrong???

Re: fitted Aux input

Also did you press the CD button twice? Does it say AUX on the screen... if not if i remember correctly you may have to activate it. I cant remember off the top of my head as the Punto got replaced with an Astra 5 years ago 😁

Re: fitted Aux input

If you have the Delphi version you need to connect it to the AF R and AF ground AF L, plus D Out and D In must be bridged...will not work if you have Blue and Me.
