Hello chaps.
ML 270 CDI 2001 auto
I have a cable sticking out from under the centre console on passenger side. It is not very flexible and has a screw thing on it to attach it to something. Any ideas what it might be? The car has an original CD, radio gps unit that works fine. All else works.

Imagine it could be a cable to an external aerial for a phone. Aerial probably gone along with phone attachment cable. I have exactly that is mine where I removed my phone cable some time back.

Good call, probably a box of co-ax with an SMA connector on that used to go into the back fo the phone cradle.
