For anyone who is interested, I found the Cell Phone connector in my '00 M.

It is not is near the shifter. The way to get at it is through the e-brake.

Remove the e-brake boot, you will notice a 2 inch square cut in the foam carpeting. Compress the square flat with your hand and look above it (or rip it out as I did), in essence be looking under the where the cup holder is, there you will see a bracket which the upper portion of the console is screwed into. Under this bracket is the connector.

The wiring to the connector has no slack, I pulled it back to the other side of the foam carpeting by the e-brake. At this point I routed it in front of the e-brake to the other side of the console by the cup holders. Now I will attempt to get the mating connector.

If anyone has any questions, post them and I will try to help. BTW, you need strong small fingers to re-route the connector.


Thanks to all who have helped me to get this far.
