First of all I wanna say thanx to everyone who has replied and tried to help me.
I still cant find the cable!!!
In the back of my Alpine head unit there is a third cable - connector C on the workshop disk - which is for the cd changer. Now maybe this cable only goes so far and I have to purchase a connecting cable, I dont know, but there is certainly a cd bus cable in the back of the head unit.... and nothing in the boot!
If any on has a 156 with the original Alpine head unit and an Alpine cd changer then please can you at least let me know what side the cable comes through at and if it plugs straight into the cd changer.
Sorry to keep this going on and on folks but I'm getting a po'd with cassettes and I dont really wanna change the head unit as it fits the look of the car great.<hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif"></strong>
I spent ages looking for mine. Like you I knew it was there as I had found it going into the head unit. All the documentation that I found showed the changer on the left of the boot, but this is misleading.
I eventually found the cable on the right hand side of the boot (looking towards the front of the car) in the very corner under the light cluster. It was tucked well back into the corner behind the rest of the wiring and quite difficult to get at. It was also looped back on itself and bound to the other cables with a cable tie making it more difficult to get out.
I connected mine to the Alpine MP3 changer unit using their M-Bus adapter, and it sprang to life without any problems (despite an official Alpine rep, and a car audio specialist both telling me that this would NOT work) giving me access to several days worth of music on CD without leaving the comfort of my driving seat.
Hope this helps.
