There is either an aux cable 3.5mm in the glove box, almost right behind the handle. It's got a white Circular bit of plastic around it.
Or as mentioned, you may have the USB and aux input in the arm rest console, but this was a very rare feature

Aux cable... We got ours from comet for 10, I'm sure you could get them at other electrical places though... Or eBay?

This is what you need, (3.5mm jack to 3.5mm jack lead). £0.99p
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4cf6f63dc0

This lead will only connect audio to the radio, without a USB connection you will only be able to control the volume from the radio, all other functions will have to be controlled from your ipod.

Ooorr...

I bought an iTrip jobby made by Belkin.

I don't use the in built radio feature, as quite frankly it's gash. Instead it has the option to plug your iPod in via the iPod connector provided, this then goes to the cigarette lighter plug in the centre console. Out of this there is a 3.5mm jack which I've subtly hidden in the car and ran it to the glovebox. On the cigarette lighter there is a forward pause play and back button. This means I can chuck the iPod/iPhone in the centre console bin. Trail the lead to the cigarette lighter and control what it plays on random.

I use the same system and it works a treat.
