Replacing the CD changer

Hi all,

We've got a 2001 Td5 with all the toys including the HK Stereo. The problem is that the CD changer under the drivers seat has packed up and despite removing it, cleaning it, wiggling wires etc it's stopped working and we cant get the magazine out of it.

As the missus drives this most of the time I'm getting fed up with her constant moaning about the bloody changer not working so I need to shut her up!.

I've looked on Ebay for a replacement changer, but they are few and far between and mainly for 300 disco's, not D2's. I believe the original is an Alpine unit, but is there a way to replace it with something I can buy down at Halfords, or other online place?

Has anyone swapped the original for something else, and what did you have to buy to make it work?

The ideal scenario would be to buy a changer and a small adaptor lead for the original changer lead that's already there, bolt it onto the old brackets and tell her to be on her way.

Any ideas? She's really getting on my nerves :(

Thanks in advance

Neil.

I think you should be grateful that you even have a non-operating changer. Me, I'd kill for one of those, working or not. :rolleyes: Best I have got in my D1 facelift is a cassette player. But it does work.

Sorry, this is not very helpful is it? :P
