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, plug the supplied wiring adaptor harness into the back of the stereo and into the loom in the car, then plug the Audiolink into the remaining socket on the harness. 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.
Latest version now works with ALL head units in the Mk3.5, all functions, track forward, back, battery charge etc. (also works from the steering wheel controls). Please note, these do NOT work with Mk3 6 disc changer head units.
Please Note: If your car is not one of the Mazda MX-5's listed above, we can not warrant this part or its suitability for use on your vehicle. You would be able to return the unit for a full refund (excluding postage costs) as long as it is returned in perfect condition.
Fitting tip: If you find after connecting the Audiolink that the only way you can hear anything is with the volume turned right up, simply unplug the small jack plug connector from the back of the stereo unit, or put a dummy plug in the socket on the front (although that doesn't look great so the first suggestion is probably better!) and that should solve the problem.
