Hi all, sorry if that has already been discussed but I have a 2008 9-5 with the stereo with front aux input and was wondering if there is anyway of putting a rear aux in instead so I can hide the wire out of the way

The other alternative would be to disassemble the radio, solder a cable onto the circuit board where the auxiliary jack connects, and run that out the back of the radio. Depending on your soldering skills, it could potentially be a fairly easy job. I did something similar in my NG900 in order to add an auxiliary input.

You could also get yourself one of those bluetooth to 3.5mm aux things. You can get some that are battery-powered, but personally I prefer the one that is plugged in continuously to the cigarette lighter in the front, so it turns on when you turn the car on. I found it on Amazon for like $20, and it has worked great. We have a hands-free law where I live now, so holding + talking on the phone is no longer a (legal) option. If you're interested let me know, and I'll find the link.

Thanks for the replies, not sure what bluesaab is, I have one of the battery powered Bluetooth aux plugins but was after a way of having music from my phone but without having anything plugged in dangling from the stereo

Bluesaab is an auxiliary input device that connects to the CD changer port and tricks the radio into thinking there's a CD changer installed so you can use the input as an auxiliary input. If you Google "Bluesaab", it should be the first thing that comes up.
