Installing TV tuner in RHD CLK.

 

Using harness A208 540 49 10

 

WARNING – THIS INVOLVES TAKING LOTS OF BITS OUT OF YOUR CAR – DON’T BLAME ME IF YOU BREAK IT – I DON’T WARRANTY ANY OF THIS.

 

I SUGGEST YOU GET A MB DEALER TO DO THIS FOR YOU

 

 

Modify wiring loom for RHD

Aux input (4 way white) connector, Green/Black lead and black+black/white CAN lead need to be moved from Right hand side of wiring loom to left hand side.

 

Power cable (Red/Blue) needs to be moved to right hand side of cable. It will be cut and connected to old cable in driver foot-well later.

CAN lead will be cut in passenger side foot-well later.

Need to expose all wiring ducts from centre console backwards

Remove rear left and right boot trim

 

 

Remove left and right rear passenger side trims (seat sides, C pillar, B pillar)

 

 

Loosen rear parcel shelf

Only need to poke some wires thru from boot to aerial amps by rear windscreen

 

Remove door sill steps

 

 

Remove centre console

Requires lots of other bits to be removed first

 

Remove front carpets

 

Remove old wiring harness for CD player and aerials from left and right of car.

Need to disconnect any wires at the wakeup Z connector in right hand door-sill wiring duct (blue/black cables)

 

Need to disconnect any wires at the aerial power Z connector in left hand door-sill wiring duct (blue/white cables)

 

Need to separate and cut the power feed from F10A in the duct in front of drivers seat (will connect to new loom)

 

 

Need to cut CAN (black, black/white) cables in passenger foot-well

 

Disconnect black/green wire from scotch connectors in left hand wiring duct (near front bulkhead)

 

Disconnect connector for AUX input in glove-box.

Part of group of connectors in left hand wiring duct

Install new loom

Install loom starting at head unit as much of the loom needs to be routed under existing cabling, especially where the duct in front of seats meet the centre console and sill ducts.

 

Right hand aerial lower amps routed via boot space and  thru rear parcel shelf, upper amp behind seat belt – fix down with felt tape.

 

Left hand lower aerial amp routed as above, upper amp routed inside car above rear seat belt and across –

 

A cable runs between left and right across parcel shelf and connects in the middle (TV4 black coax cable)

 

Remember to connect the wakeup (right door sill) and the aerial power cables (left door sill) back together

 

Connect power lead (red/blue) previously cut to new loom (cutting of excess)

 

Connect black/green cable to point where you disconnected old loom from.

 

Solder CAN connections back. It is important to keep the black and black/white cables twisted together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Need to fix loom to panel so it doesn’t interfere with seatbelt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In duct in front of driver side seat

 

 

In left hand wiring duct

 

 

In duct in front of passenger seat

 

 

Install TV bracket and module and cover

TV tuner sits in door panel beside rear right passenger.

 

I modified a W210 part, adding a hook to hook the upper edge onto the “door” panel and the lower brackets to the lower part of that panel and the panel between the seat belt mechanism and the cavity where the tuner is mounted

 

Ensure that where the wires run from the loom to the cavity all edges are coated with the sticky-back-felt and will not get damaged by body work.

 

Configure with Star Diagnosis machine

The system just works by default but should be properly configured.

 

Firstly, set the “TV Tuner” to “Installed”

Decide how you want the four safety features set. These are, handbrake, park, speed > 0kmh, speed > 10kmh
