[eas] *** DIY TUTORIAL - DICE iPod integration kit in e46 Coupe *** (cont.)

41. Route trunk harness up kickpanel to very top.

42. There is a pre existing hole in the glovebox, the iPod cable is a perfect canidate for this position. Route the iPod cable through the inside of the glovebox frame and prepare for connection to the DICE module.

43. Connect trunk interface module and iPod Dock connector cable to DICE module. Verify DIP switches are set to the "OFF" position. If you would like to utilize the AUX connection on the module, this would be a great time to connect your interface cable (available seperately).

We also have these on the site:

eas 3.5mm male/female AUX extension cord
