Question 2007 Focus AUX button - please help!

I have an 07 focus with the stock head unit that has an AUX button, mute button, and MP3 playback (single disc). I also bought a Zune lately and don't want to bother with the FM transmitter. Of course, for some awful reason, there is no stereo miniplug line in on the head end, despire the Aux button being there. I considered buying a new head unit with the plug, but my wife loves the huge buttons on the stock unit. So my question is, how on earth do I add a stereo miniplug input and attach it to wherever the Aux input really is? (behind the radio??) Can I do this myself? I'm good with electronincs but have never messed with car audio before. Thanks for any tips!

Ok, now I am being told that neither of the above are compatible with the 2007 Focus. What the hell? What the heck is the point of the AUX button if there is no way to use it?

either one of those would work and then you would just need to find the cable the rca to headphone jack and it would work. I believe that the second choice is a simple plug in to the back of the radio. Let me know how it goes.

Good one Tom but he wants something for his Zune. Either one of those options would work for what you want.
