Alpine CD Changer Wiring HELP!

I purchased an Alpine 6 Disk changer with interface on ebay. All the wires are there, but, alas, I have NO idea the sequence they go. There is a power plug and female/male connectors on one end and several plugs on the other. The unit came out of a 92 300E, so I know that it should just plug and play. That is...if I knew what to plug. The CD player is an older one that I'll replace. I mainly want sound out of it now and will deal with that later. I found a wiring diagram for the Becker changer on here, but haven't found anything on the Alpine wiring. I know it's probably simple, but I'm a little baffled on this one.

I appreciate any help on this. I'm getting the main cable fixed this evening as I managed to pull a couple of the tiny wires loose in it. Perhaps my little dark cloud will pass with the next cold front...

Can you post a pic of what you have so I can tell you what to do?
I have a pic of the aftermarket parts but not of the stock parts.

Scott,

Thank you for the quick response...you're saving the day on this project.

I'll attach 3 pictures...one of the whole thing...and the others of each "end" of the wiring...

I'd be glad to give them all letters or numbers if you like...

In the second photo the black 8 pin and the blue 8 pin go together. In the 3 rd photo the blue male din plugs into the tuner box where the existing plug is and the existing plug goes into the 8 pin blue female connector. The power 4 pin connector unplugs from the tuner box and plugs into the blue 4 pin connector and the other one pluge back into the tuner box. And you are done!
