Installation is easy, but does require removal of your vehicle's head unit from the center console. IMPORTANT! BEFORE removing the head unit and plugging this device in, you must first disconnect the vehicles battery. Not only is this for your safety when removing the stereo, but also in some circumstances, failiure to disconnect the battery can make the audio link malfunction. Once the head unit is removed, the Audio Link simply plugs into the external CD changer port, located on the back of the head unit. The Audio Link wiring can then be routed to your glove box, down the center console to the cupholders, or wherever would be most convenient for you.
The kit includes the Audio Link control unit and a plug-and-play wiring harness.
Only works with the Mazda Modular Units, will not work with 'Bose' audio in Mk2/2.5.
