Ok. I have my car in the garage and my new "C" revision Bluetooth module and matching Kufatec harness (thanks Lanny/Euro-Parts) ready to go. Now, a couple quick questions:

First off, are there any English instructions for this harness? There are a ton of wires and connectors which are unaccounted for in the Kufatec photo, and there are no directions included.

Secondly, can I just wire this into the pre-wired OEM phone parts already in my car (e.g., the mic mounted near the sunroof and the small speaker in the driver's side door)? If so, how.

Thirdly, where is a good mounting place for all of this stuff? It seems as though I am going to have a ton of extra cable left over.

Finally, is there anything else I should know about a B5 retrofit, or just the regular install?

Thanks in advance guys. I'm going to go out and start ripping my car apart now, so I can get a good idea of the task before me firsthand. Any advice would certainly be appriciated. Thanks again.

:D

Thanks. Something I haven't been able to find yet is an English translation of what the connections are on the Kufatec harness. Especially the loose wires near the red (RNS-E/RNS-D) connector. I am assuming that some are for CAN and some are for th mute, but I have no idea which are which.

Finally, why are there 2 power cables (one unconnected to anything and one connected to the harness).

Thanks.

I am translating some documentation on the harness right now and should have all of the connections deciphered within the next two days.

Cool, thanks. I actually have my car apart right now though, and think I am coming along rather well. Only thing I really need now are just the names/functions of the few unconnected wires near the RNS-E connector (red connector).

There is: 1 grey, 1 yellow, and 1 twisted pair (1 black with a yellow stripe; 1 black with a white stripe).

I am assuming that the grey is the telephone mute, and the twisted pair are the CAN signals, but I still don't know what the yellow one is, or which of the twisted pair are CAN-high or CAN-low.

Thanks again.
