    Getting access to the SID unit of a 2006-2009 9-5

    Hello everybody,

    I am trying to figure out the most efficient way of getting access to the SID of my 2007 9-5 Aero so that I can tap a wire into it from my PAC SWI-RC steering wheel controls unit for my after market radio (Pioneer NEX).

    It's located behind the instrument panel.
    Here is a screenshot: https://gyazo.com/8771903be347c41cef5502d08fb5459b

    I'm wondering how big a job that actually is.

    Thank you.

    you will need to remove the whole dash panel. together with the indicator and wiper stalks. not difficult, but time consuming.

    Is it not possible to intercept and tap the wire I need at the steering wheel column? ..Before it goes into the dash panel to the unit?
