Default Antenna Ground Wire (Black)

Where do you plug the ground antenna wire into?

There should be a small port near the aerial mast to plug into. I believe you have a German made Hirschmann Antenna motor unit, but the Japanese made ones are similar.

Itís not the end towards the rear of the car itís the end in the front Iíve been told it plugs into the back of the radio but I donít want to take the whole radio out if I donít have to.

Any wire at the back of the radio, power, ground, and antenna are only accessible by taking out the radio. I believe that the oem radio had a harness of these wires, as well as speaker connections. If you're uncertain or intimidated by removing the radio from the dashboard, any competent audio technician can easily do it.
