Head Unit Removal

Hi guys,

I am installing a Kendwood KDC-BT37 Head unit and have found a blue connector in the loom. What does this connect to?

According to wikipedia;

The blue connector is called a C3 and is usually CD Changer.

Also,
It is common on head unit swaps for this age SLK, to have to swap the 12V and the Ignition wires,
but you’ll need to check against your new head units’ requirements.
