    Ok! So I boughy my 2009 with an aftermarket Pioneer Double Din installed. Found out quickly that the factory AUX port wasnt hooked up, and wasnt compatable with the system. I also found out that someone bought the non-bluetooth model....

    Here is how I rectified the situation.

    I got got on Amazon and ordered these parts.

    Feed Thru AUX Port
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B073MSCPPR?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_pd


    AUX cable (Non needed for the mod, but I needed a new one and the 90° will work perfect for this situation)
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00LM0U8MW?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_pd

    I had to order a Pioneer specific IP-BUS to Male AUX cable. If someone needs that too, Ill send a link, but for the sake of this "Universal Mod"...ill hold off.

    Youll also need:
    -Drill bit (19/64")
    -Drill or Drill Press
    -Flat head screwdriver
    -Epoxy
    -Zipties
    -Radio Removal Tools
    -about 2 hours worth of time



    Ok! First I poped out the radio bezel and heater controls. Reached back under the radio down to the factory AUX plug thing, and pushed it out from behind. Unplugged, removed and disected the unit.

    Its was pretty easy to gut this thing. Couple small push tabs and it was apart. I just used a small flat blade screw driver.

    Now, the only thing your going to need now, is the face, with the flappy cover, and the surround that has the tabs to hold in the unit to the dash... the rest, do as you wish.

    The hole that the factory female AUX comes thru is just ever so slightly too small to fit our new feed thru port. Install instructions say to use a 3/8" hole....but I used a 19/64" (.297) drill bit to open it up a tad, which I will explain here in a second. I used a drill press to maintain a square hole, but a cordless drill and a vice would work too. Just be careful not to destroy the face of the AUX plug.

    Now the new AUX feed thru is just that, a feed thru.... BUT!, I didnt mount it as a feed thru, because...
    1). I wanted to maintain factory usage of the flappy cover thing, because its clean, and Im picky.
    2). The mounting nut wont fit in the space provided in the plastic face piece.

    So. The 19/64" bit makes it a "press fit" so to speak... it just kinda pushed thru and sits flat on the secondary ring on the AUX port. This makes you able to use the flappy cover, and it just looks clean instead of sticking WAYYYY out there.

    So... now your ready to use epoxy to hold this thing in... sure its a "press fit" but not press fit enough to not need epoxy.

    I used JB Weld's Clear Weld 5 Minute Expoy... I also bought the needle applicators too, just incase.

    1604n78_f02a801b4c72e98bebd5ef9c3071e69894b28534.jpg

    So.. I put a bit of expoy in the mixing tray and used a toothpick to mix and apply. I put a smidge on the inside of the hole, and inside on the back of the hole were the step part of the port will sit flat. I also put a bit on the port itself, were it will sit in the face.

    Push thru.

    Now, there is a opening were you can apply more epoxy, which I did... I used the needle applicator to give it a liberal amount of epoxy to insure it would NOT move...

    And now you wait.

    I decided to do this write-up while I waited.... You..well, you just go do something for about an hour.

    So now that your expoy is "set up" and mostly cured, you can carefully begin your install.

    I did install my IP-BUS cable while I waited. I suggest installing your AUX adaptor, or whatever you need to feed the cable to your radio while you wait... it will make that hour go fast..

    I just ran it down and out the hole for the factory AUX Plug.

    Now you should probably test this to make sure it works correctly, so you dont have to tear into this again.

    Now your ready to button this up.

    Grab your new plug, and get to installing.

    I put the rear section of the plug over the cable first so I could support the new AUX jack when I plugged it all in.

    And continued assembly.

    Be careful when you put the 2 halves together as well. They will break..so just be easy, It will only go one way.

    Once it was in I tested again before throwing the trim pieces back on.

    Flawless.

    I used a ziptie to bundle the rest of the cable and get it tucked away... threw on the trim and VIOLA!

    No more local radio junk.
