Unhappy

So overall, what is the Cheapest and Easiest way to connect and use my ZUNE? (Charging would be a plus, but not necessarily a must.)

- I have the [pointless] AUX button on my '05 stock; single disc, MP3 capable.

-- I also was thinking about getting a new radio; so if I did, would I be better off just getting something with an aux output? And how would that connect to the Zune?


I've read post after post and gave myself a headache; just confused now, sorry...

Please someone say theres a solution that doesnt involve buying a new head unit!
I'm sure it's too late (post was in May) but I was looking at radios online at Walmart and saw this one has a USB, Aux, and SD card slot :P pretty nifty, but not sure if it's a good/reliable manuf.

A little trick I did was just take a flathead and slowly pry off one side, turning the screwdriver back and forth (in counter/clockwise positions, not pushing it out like a lever). You'll hear a little click noise to let you know it's free. Then, go to the other half of the circle and get that off same way. I didn't break either of them

NOT Pushing with a Down Force to just pop it off, but twistiing it sideways:

I held the armrest top like it would normally "sit" and lifted the back part first with that little notch and my flathead again. Pushed it Forward slightly and kinda wiggled it left/right.. came off nice too. And, sorry for pics being dark. It was 1 in the morning.

YOU AIN'T KIDDING!! This thing was soo ridiculous to get off >__>
Def destroyed this sucker lol, check it out.. Ford sure didn't want that coming off - spent a good 10-15 minutes slamming it with a bunch of stuff and only spinning it in place till it finally came out =P (And, I WAS doing it nice at first, but that little what-looked-like-a-square notch didn't make any difference.

Didn't read through all the pages, but is there something so I can hook my Sirius up to the aux on my 6-disc audiophile in my 07?

It should work with Sirius Satellite yes, but I suspect you would need to buy a different adaptor, or maybe just a different cable with a 3.5 stereo jack to use for your sirius receiver. i would google the manufacturer and see if they carry Non-Ipod cables as well.

selling a ford aux cable in the buy/sell/trade section....if anyone is interested. Comes with cable harness. Pretty sure it fits 05 Focus's. Should probably double check. But there is an adequate pic there to see harness and figure out for ones self.
