    Question Cd changer removal

    Hi,

    Been having issues with my stereo throwing up random error codes when playing CD's.

    I want to remove the CD changer so that I can check it out mechanically and give it and the optical head a good clean.

    Had a look but cannot figure out how it comes out of the metal bracket that it is mounted in.

    It's located in the boot.

    Can anyone give me any pointers as to how to remove the changer?

    Thanks

    On mine, the entire bracket slid out after removing 2 or three screws, then you can unbolt the changer from the bracket.

    Not sure if its the same on a saloon.

    Remove the n/s boot trim,then undo 2 or 3 8mm bolts and the whole bracket comes out,after undoing the wiring plug.

    Will an aftermarket cd changer fit onto existing wiring connection?
    Any recommendations?
