Welcome to SLKWorld.

Did you check inside the glove box to see if there's already an OEM AUX in on the front, outboard side?

Do you have a link to a picture that matches your head unit (used to be called "the radio") so we know what model it is? On my 2006 that has navigation there's a connector on the back of the head unit for AUX in.

Once we see the head unit someone will chime in. With mine, MB sells a "kit" that's essentially a cable with the connector that inserts into the back of the head unit and reaches over to the outboard side of the glove box. There's a small knockout spot on the side of the glove box where the 1/8" / 3.5 mm jack snaps into the glove box.

If it turns out to be the same connector as mine with your unit, it's simple to remove the plastic panel below the dash on the passenger side (search on the site here, it's about 3 screws to remove then pop it out). Then you can probably see the back of your head unit with using a flash light to inspect for the connection point.

Pictures below are a 2006 COMAND NTG1 for comparison. AUX-IN connector is the tiny square connection on back of HU in center, and the user end of it is the stainless steel jack with black plastic retainer ring in the glove box.
