I believe the wiring is still there even though you didn't have it originally.
There should be a connection on the driver side under the panel that holds the speakers in the trunk area. It's black.

The connection is already in the trunk. The panel on the Driver Side, the furthest one in the back. Has a speaker grill on the outside, there are two speakers attached to it. Pull off that panel and you will see the connection. It will be attached to the wires that run to your speakers, I believe.
I've never installed one, but I think all you have to do is plug the changer into the connection that's there and it will work.
Only thing you should have to worry about is mounting the changer.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
You could also do a search in the Stereo / Electronics Forum to see if there are other threads about this.

I saw an Delco changer in the trunk at a junkyard. It was sitting on the little shelf area in the driver side hatch. That's where allot of ppl but a single sub box.

If anyone has ever done this before i could use some input. What did you mount it to if your car wasn't equipped with it. I checked under the rear panel and the plug is definatley there, but where and what do i mount it too?

I put one in my 98 when I got it new. But I the got the changer from the dealer and it came with all the mounting hardware/brackets. If yours is used and does`nt come with it I do`nt know where you would go for for the these. E-Bay? Anyway, it just plugs into the the preexisting cable. It mounts inside the cubby to the left of the t-top storage well behind the driver. I had to mark the bracket mounting holes and drill them out. After I mounted the unit I got underneath where the mounting bolt and nuts went through and sealed them with silicone. About 1 hr. Good luck.
