If I can find a supplier of the pins required for the bt/vc connector I'm going to modify it to make it into a stereo loom just in case I source a newer bt unit with usb at a later date

I did the same with my mic wire I removed the pins from mic connector of my patch loom and installed them into the plug in the passenger a pillar (as my titanium has the mic wire from the a pillar to the light but it stopped at the a pillar) this enabled me to use oem mic in the light

Chw1 if you are in same boat and do not have usb.

bt/vc plug end move pin 1 white wire to either 5/6 (6 is left 5 is right) and move pin 2 brown wire to pin 23

Stereo end remove brown and white from pins 1&7 of the b connector which is black on my loom

Move the brown wire from pin 7 from b connector ( the black one) to c connector (the white one) pin 6 which is occupied by a black wire (from your aux port) , move the White wire from pin 1 of your b connector to either of the 2 white occupied wires in c connector pins 5&11 bridge the two to hear the sound through both sides

If you have done it as I have done it, this will render your aux port useless but only through your patch cable (which is the one you are changing) if you put your car back to stock aux port will again function as the wires are all right in the cars loom.

You can wire it to work with both but you would require some more pins for the bt/vc plug and some wire as you don't have enough wires to move as old mono loom has 10 wires whereas stereo loom has 14 wires

You could also bridge the wires at the stereo end on the c connector to leave your aux plug working but because you have only got either the left or right sound due to lack of wires your vc and phone sound will only come out one side

I've only got mono sound naturally because I don't have another wire in my by/vc plug, so at the stereo end I've just bridged it so sound comes from both sides. It works spot on, as all I'm using it for is phone capability since my unit does not have USB, and people want silly money for the USB version

But because I'm good I've managed to alter my loom and it's now working ;)
