Hi guys,

I'm going to do a retrofit of the HK amp, speakers and an ASD module. I found a full set on ebay, which doesn't come with the wiring harness, so I have to make my own. (Which is not a problem, since my workplace has all the necessary wires and tools).
I have all the schematics and I put together a spreadsheet with links to Newtis.info on how to wire my specific headunit (will post this here later).

However, I'm having some trouble with finding the correct pins for each connector:
- I'm not sure what pins go into the rectangular slots of this connector: A37*1B
I found somewhere on a BMW forum that this is the correct pin: "Socket contact ELO-Power 2,8x0,63 2,5-4,0 MMІ" part nr 61 13 6913612
But when I look at the pictures, it seems more square than the rectangular holes in the socket housing.

I do have the parts nrs of the covering cap and both socket housings.

Any thoughts?

Blue or red? Blue aren't socket pins. They're plastic guiding tabs for the socket housing.

I'm talking about pins 1-5 and 22-26, red in your picture

I think I found what I need. I had a closer look at the repair manual section of newtis and found this: Link

It seems like it is an "Elo Power 5.2 mm width" connector, which I managed to match to this part nr: 61138364844

Since you're retrofitting HK anyway, i'd suggest that you check this blog post
it's in Russian, but probably google translate can do the trick.
The idea is this guy fitted the Harman Kardon using a BMW amp instead of a MINI amp. Says the sound quality is a lot better since the MINI amp is pretty basic and not good enough for the HK speakers.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind! Might be something for a future upgrade

Hi guys,

Small update:

I almost have all the parts I need. I got the full set of speakers, the ASD module and the amplifier, I also received the A-pillars, centre speaker cover and the rear side panels (which came with the JCW sports interior).

I messed up with the pin terminals though, turns out I ordered the wrong ones. I had a closer look at all the various connectors and I ended up ordering these, which hopefully are now the correct ones:

Small pins:
Socket terminal MQS 0,2-0,35MM²/SN - part nr. 61131383776
Socket terminal MQS 0,5-0,75MM²/SN - part nr. 61131393724

Larger pins:
Socket terminal ELO 2,8X0,63 1,0-2,5MM²/SN - part nr. 61138364838

Will update when I start installing it

Hi guys,

today was the second day, it’s taking quite a bit longer than I first thought! I stripped the whole interior yesterday and today I came as far as installing the seat heating and wiring all power and CAN connections on the ASD and amp.

The amp and ASD module show up in esys, however they are missing the CAFD, so I will have to investigate further. I’ll update you on the process!
