Default add MP3 Input to existing?

I just picked up a 04 Bonneville SLE. Has factory radio with CD player only. I see AUX/CD on the radio controls. Is there some AUX lines somewhere I can tap into, to add a MP3 input?

Most likely in the rear of the Head unit.

If you radio has an auxillery input that is not being used, PAC makes a peice that you can plug into the input. these peices have become soooo common because factory intergration is so big now. Let me know if you need help finding it

Well, there was this writeup...
https://www.gmforum.com/t244211/

What was done is a relay was used to switch between CD player output that went into an input on the head unit and the aux input, which used the same channel. It should be different but similarly doable for a 2004. Or, do you have an amp in your SSEi?
