Follow this procedure to learn how to replace the radio amplifier on your Mercedes-Benz W209.
- Park the vehicle and make sure to remove the key from the ignition.

- Disconnect the negative battery terminal from the battery.
- Remove the liner on the left side of the trunk.

It should work if you purchased a used amplifier with the same number, even though programming is recommended.
The wires harness was damaged. Instead of removing the whole wire harness, which would have taken way too long, we cut the damaged part and reconnected a new connector at the end.
