I have a C-Max from 2011 with the stereo as shown in the picture.

When i push the AUX button the display shows "Line in" - so the stereo seems to have that option.

But the car doesn't have an auxiliary input. I've looked in the glove compartment and under and in front of the armrest.

So - what do I need buy to get an input?

When I search ebay I find cables for the CD6000 but that is an older stereo I belive.

And how can I remove the stereo without breaking some of the panels?

 

I have fitted rear parking sensors and a 50w xenon kit for the High beam so now it's time to fix the aux imput.

Normally if you have one its tucked away somewhere, like behind the glove box, or perhaps under the centre console.

 

Best bet is to try and take these out and see what you can find!

you may need to extract the stereo and see if you have the extra socket on the back for the required input lead , it will only be a line in socket that you can install as your stereo does not have bluetooth function or Usb.

In mine it's in the Storage compartment under the central armrest, along with USB as well, but mines a Titanium and concious that not all Zetecs have the centre armrest

Hi again

 

I managed to get the stereo out and it looks like the pictures below.

Anyone know which color is the aux? It should be 3 wires I think.

 

Or is there another way of connecting an aux input?

 

Regards Thomas

Thats the central wires, so that has everything from the power, switched power to the earth. You should find a seperate loom plugs directly into the back of the stereo and heads off to the glovebox area.
