Tell us about yourself!
You don't need to disconnect the ribbon connector. You can add a line adapter that will convert the headphone output to something similar to the CD input. That way you can still use your CD! Instructions are here...http://www.vwlowen.co.uk/radio/headphone2linein/he...I also added a power line from the AUX power and GND lines so I could power a cheap SD card reader/amplifier so I don't need to plug in my phone every time. Works great!
