Hey all,

I have a problem, a CD is after getting stuck in the CD changer, its the original unit in the car, has anyone else had this problem and is there a way of taking out the CD or am I in trouble?

Stick a small flat through the cd slot and wrestle with it while pressing eject...
After you get the cd out...annihilate the unit and buy a deck...lol...

Got the dreaded error3 code alrite, tried taking it out (worked before) but the CD got stuck, after taking the CD player outta the car and having a go at taking the back of it off now to get at the CD changer and hopefully take out the CD without making s@3! of it!

I was doing exact same thing with my one and error code was there all the time, so I stripped it down (hammer time!) and just got the alpine instead! Check do You have build-in amp if so I have lead to bypass it (never used) to connect new radio, just in case..

Well after stripping it down there was a CD holder thingy stuck and I fixed that but the plastic thing to grab the CDs is broken so the CD is pretty much f**ked...

Looking at getting a relatively cheap double din stereo to replace it, anybody have any suggestions?

This one perhaps? http://www.ebay.ie/itm/D2223-7-LCD-Car- ... 3465a#shId
