IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU DO NOT RUN ANY CB ANTENNA WIRES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO ANY OF THE HEADSET CABLES !
Non-­‐Airbag Models Installation of the communication system requires that you access the 13 pin CB connector located at the end of a cable under the right side of the radio (Fig 1) and a 3 pin power connector located under the passenger seat (Fig 2) Please follow the manufacturers instructions for removal of the seat and the top shelter particular to your model, in many cases the top shelter need not be completely removed and access to the CB connector can be made from the right hand side once the top shelter +ixings have been removed. !
2006-2010 Airbag Models Installation of the communication system requires that you access the same 13 pin CB connector however in the case of airbag equipped models this is located below the right side fairing air vent (which must be removed) to the rear of the radiator and again the same 3 pin power connector located under the passenger seat (Fig 2) !
Please follow the manufacturers instructions for removal of the seat and any body panels required particular to your model, in many cases on 2001-­‐2010 models the top shelter need not be completely removed and access to the CB connector can be made from the right hand side once the top shelter +ixings have been removed. !
Prepare the trunk To allow the routing of the system cabling you will need to drill a suitable size hole to allow the smaller cable connector to pass through in the base of the rear trunk at the factory marked location (Fig 3) we recommend that you remove the trunk to allow room to do this although it is possible to do it without removal but care must be taken to avoid damage to the surrounding area. If you want to remove the trunk to conduct this step please refer to the manufacturers instructions on how to do this, trim to size and test +it the supplied grommet to ensure a weather tight seal. !

1. Starting from under the seat route the main connector through the hole that you drilled in the previous step, at this stage if you are running a cable for a GPS you should route it through the same hole. 2.

If not already done split the grommet and place it around the cables test +it it in the hole this will need to be a tight +it you will need to trim the grommet to suit the number of cables used on your particular installation and the hole. 9. Ensure the base of the trunk is clean and place the EV01A unit in the CB well of the trunk , you may use some +ixing tape but this is not necessary.
