How to Activate Bluetooth Connectivity in the 2007 Mercedes E 350

Updated February 21, 2017

The 2007 Mercedes E350 does not feature built-in Bluetooth connectivity. However, the car's centre console offers a pre-installed contact plate that you can use with the Mercedes-Benz cradle adaptor with Bluetooth. The first time you use the cradle, you will need to activate or pair the cradle with a compatible Bluetooth mobile phone. After you successfully complete the pairing process, your phone will automatically connect to the cradle when both devices are turned on and placed within range of one another.

Locate the passkey on the Mercedes-Benz cradle adaptor with Bluetooth. The pass code will appear on a sticker. Write down this number for future reference.

Open the centre console on your 2007 Mercedes E350. Slide the cradle adaptor upward into the contact plate. The cradle will snap into place and make a clicking sound when successfully installed.

Turn the key to the first available position.

Press the button on the cradle for approximately three seconds. Release the button when the cradle's LED lights begin to flash.

Pair your cellular telephone to the Merceds-Benz cradle. Consult your mobile phone's owner's manual for detailed directions about how to pair your phone.

Select the "MB PhoneSystem" on your mobile phone from the list of available Bluetooth devices.

Enter the pass code, when prompted, on your mobile phone.

Wait while your mobile phone and the cradle adaptor complete the pairing process. Your mobile phone will prompt you when the process is complete and Bluetooth connectivity is active.
