I assume you mean the OEM changer? The wires should be there in a "buslink" where you install the radio. You might have to reach back in there to find them. The link easily attaches, but you might have a hard time getting the security piece to close all the way (you'll see what I mean when you find the buslink). The CD changer gets mounted above the battery in your trunk. There should be a black cable somewhere in your trunk, it may be under the upholstery so it may take a little looking to find it. You can get a mounting bracket from the stealership for around 20ish dollars (if I remember correctly). Just make sure you take the changer with you and make sure that you find the plug in the trunk first. 92-95 used a round plug (I think) and 96-99 used a square plug. If you have the wrong type of changer, then unfortunately there is not a way to make that work (not saying you can't rewire it, but big pain).
edit: On the front sides of the OEM radio unit, there are two flaps. Pull them up and you find a bolt under each with a very very tiny star shaped head. In order to keep the unit from falling out you need to tighten these bolts. The size is very unusual, you can buy the right size from bavauto, or if you know the guys at the stealership well enough then you can get them to do it for free. If not they will try to charge you one hour labor.
