( > It's been a while since I had my '93 9000CSE abd did this, but I recall that I removed the stock cassette deck and the equalizer both and installed an aftermarket (Sony eXplode) headunit w/ CD player. I bought mine from, and they provided an adapter cable of some kind. The only additional thing was there was an amplifier under the (right side) passenger seat for the rear speakers that I had to disable and bypass. I don't remember where I found the wiring diagrams for the OEM stereo, but I did. They are out there somewhere... Oh, the sound from the aftermarket SONY was *much* better than from the OE Clarion crapola, and I had in-dash CD which was the main objective. I chose the Sony because it had a very sensitive FM receiver. That also worked better after the swap than the OE ever did. -- -Fred W
