Remove the trim strip arround the dash with a screwdriver wrapped in a soft cloth starting from the ends, it just pulls out, then unscrew and slide out.

See previous link for what's required. It's basically a 10 pin plug (you may have to 'merge' the pins with one that's already there) with a wire and small resistor/capacitor network (so that the head unit can detect it) terminating in a standard jack socket that goes in the glove box.

When fitted, the 'MODE' button on the head unit gets an extra source that you cycle through, Radio -> CDC -> CD -> Aux -> Radio etc.
