When you will be in the car put the radio out by inserting a screwdriver or a though wire into the for holes on the radio.Take the radio out and be sure that your car is off.Also take the lower deppartment out because you will need to drill a hole in it with the Electric Drill.Now when you drilled the hole insert the 3.5mm jack through the hole from behind.Take the other end with the Mini ISO connector through the bottom deppartment.Take out the Yellow Conector(Like in the picture below) and merge the two connectors togheter.Now when you done that insert the two connectors back and insert the radio back.Then insert the lower deppartment back.

Now start the car and long hold the button with the music logo.Using the change station buttons switch to AUX function and turn it on by pressing the + button on the vollume button.When you done that just wait untill it exits automatilcly.
Step 6: Testing
Now press the SRC button to the AUX function,insert the 3.5mm jack in the mp3 player or smartphone and play some music.Enjoy :)
