So my dad found a Aftermarket Antenna to replace the broken one in the C230 I bought. He installed the Antenna but just not the wiring, I was wondering how do you setup the wiring for it?

This is a small video of the wiring - http://tinypic.com/player.php?v=34t8wf6&s=6 - The video shows the wiring from the C230 and the wiring from the Aftermarket Antenna.

If anyone could help me out that would be grateful!

Black, Earth
Red, 12V
Blue, switch power from radio.

Fairly sure that is how it will work.

Thank You For Helping, But I don't understand, You said

Black = Earth (Meaning = GROUND)
Red = 12V (Meaning = POWER)
Blue = Switch Power From Radio (Antenna Wire or something)

If this is the case which wire is the BROWN for?

And how do I know which Blue wire to connect to?

Blue -? Which Blue?
BLACK -? Which Blue?
RED - RED = POWER/12V
BROWN -? (No more wiring.)
