    Cool

    I am sure someone in here might know that answer. It might also be much easier for you to just take a speaker/earphone with the wires and trace through. That is how me and my boy did the setup in my car. Just so you know i don't have a clarion head unit.

    try the search function on the board. I know this has been discussed before, and I think you may have to buy an adapter

    Check on the bottom of your head unit. Lots of Clarions have a switch that changes one of the RCA-outs to an AUX-IN. Mine is set up like that.

    Why don't you take the cover off your cd changer and see where the pins go?
    It'll be quite simple, there should be 2 wires for power, 3 for audio (left+, right+ and common ground - but the common ground might be the same as the power negative!)
    and then others for signalling the changer.
    The way i'd do it would be to tap into the audio wires and wire that upto your mp3 player, burn a CD with 74 (or 80) minutes of silence so your head unit plays nothing, then pump your mp3 player though it!

    If anyone thinks i'm speaking garbage, please let me know. But I can't think of a reason why it won't work.
    Best regards,
