DIY Facelift BL/BP AUX install

4 posts in this topic

This is for all facelift BL/BP legacy and outbacks with a Kenwood stereo (2006-2009)

Here is a small guide to install an AUX

If you have this stereo: with an AUX button which seems to do nothing

Then you will most likely have no AUX socket in your centre console

You will need to purchase these cables: (does not have to be from these suppliers)

Once you have collected all the pieces you will need to pull the stereo out - it is rather simple, follow this thread for good pics on how to remove: Note: I didn't need remove the whole centre console

Once you have the stereo removed - you need to run the wires from the stereo to the centre box - I unfortunately can't find a pic of where the adapter plugs in on the back of the stereo - but there is only one socket it will fit into anyway

When the wires have been run - you will then need to drill a hole the correct size for the AUX port

Here is the AUX port installed in my centre box
