~$160 999U7-ST002 iPod interface~$30 999U7-VT000 iPod harness I (required for all installs)~$30 999U7-VT001 iPod harness J (required for satellite radio)
~$240 shipped from Lee Auto. $210 if you don't have factory satellite radio. There are definitely other Nissan parts & accessories dealers, including sponsors to the right, that you could also check with. I think Peripheral's interface is less expensive.
These instructions are actually for a Panavise mount (mentioned above and I'd also highly recommend it) that is secured to the right side of the radio. However, you'd basically follow steps 1 & 2 and then remove the other 2 screws holding the radio in. There are a couple of photos in the Panavise instructions that can give you a rough idea of what's involved.http://www.panavise.com/pdf_indash/751311508.pdf
1. Remove the bezel at the base of the shifter with a dash tool (get one if you don't already have one).2. Pop the upper and lower clips holding the climate control module with your dash tool. Either move it out of the way or disconnect the wiring harnesses and place it elsewhere.3. Pop the two lower clips holding the air vent assembly. Move a bit up and pop the next pair of clips. There's a third set even further up. The assembly slides out and forward.4. Remove the 4 screws holding the radio module. 2 on top. 2 under (1 hidden by some thin foam stuff).
Figuring out the wiring is the next part. Take a look at:
If that doesn't intimidate you then go for it. Like I said, you don't get much in the way of instructions. The Nissan techs are expected to pull up instructions on their own.
You'll need to find a spot to mount the module. There's a lot of unused room under the radio. I'm not specifically recommending this location nor do I know if it's even a good idea. Caveat emptor. The interface comes with a square of double sided foam tape.
Don't forget to ground to the chassis at a suitable point.
I didn't really use any of the adhesive foam strips or very many of the zip ties included.
Definitely perform a quick test before you put everything together.
The airbag warning light will probably flash after you get everything reassembled. Search around NICOclub.com and you'll find instructions on clearing it.
Note that neither this nor the Peripheral interface will charge the iPhone 3G, iPod nano (4th Generation) or the iPod touch (2nd Generation). You'll need a charging adapter like the Scosche passPORT.http://www.scosche.com/products/productID/1667
