I owe a Citroen Berlingo 2002, problem is no audio in.

The result is a 3.5mm female jack getting out the radio. So when you want to listen to music, set the volume of the radio down to minimum, connect your mp3 player (phone, ipod, etc.) and click play!

We need to remove and disassemble the radio and make 4 little weldings in it. We will use an audio 3.5mm female jack cable (but you can use whatever sound interface you like - es. male 3,5mm jack, female-male 6,3mm jack, female/male RCA audio - )

The VDO RD3-00 is a car radio sold with other cars by Citroen/Peugeot:
Peugeot 206
Peugeot 307
Peugeot 807
Citroen Xara Picasso
Citroen C2
Citroen C3
Citroen C8
Citroen Berlingo

I did get the info for the welding from this article, but didn't understood anything else because it is written in Spanish, I think!

Step 1: Remove the radio

To remove the player from the fascia, just insert four small screwdrivers or something similar into the slots at the sides. This is from a tutorial from the web, I actually took it off by forcing it with a cutter... your choice!
Disconnect the ISO connectors (Black for power and VAN bus data communication; White for the four speakers - see piture) Disconnect the grey cable on the right, too.

<p>Hi! I tried this method on my Peugeot 206 radio, RD3-00. I applied everythink in your steps. </p><p>But i have the following issues: when i ground the cable to the copper frame, a huge noise comes through the speakers. When i do not ground it, the noise is gone and the audio is OK, but the voice in the music is very very low, almost unhearable. </p><p>Any idea's?</p>

Also makes lots of noise when I plug the cellphone to the car charger. </p><p>When I use the cellphone or iPod alone, it works great!</p><p>Tried to buy the connector filman bought... but couldn't find it here in Colombia...
