Adding Satellite Radio Service to 2005 ML350

Hi all,

I would like to add satellite radio to my 2005 ML350. I really know nothing about this, and would appreciate any information on what this would require and what I could expect to pay.

I just added satellite radio in an 07 ML. It was a simple install but I researched it thoroughly. Understanding the dismantling of the dash to access behind the command unit and purchasing the wiring harness and receiver to make it a plug and play affair.

The whole satellite retrofit kit cost me 1300.00.

Ajax, can you share where the radio actually mounts? And if the wiring harness is sold separately?

The radios in the 2005 and 2007 are completely different. The 05 is a W163 ML and the 07 is a W164 ML.
You will need radio removal keys for the 05 ML and the MCS pulls straight out.
