    Hi peps,

    Was wondering how to test the original 6 disc cd changer in my 98 A6 as i'm looking at selling it to fund some new subs as mine has blown! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I bought the car with a new 10 disc sony changer fitted and i have no original head unit to test it with.

    Also don't know anyone with an audi to test it on.

    Any help much appreciated.

    hmm ... only way i could say is to test it in another audi.
    try pretending to buy one and say ya wanna test the head unit in it works by plugging your changer into the lead behind the panel in the boot!
    you could also get it bench tested but would prob cost a bit to do.

    yeah will be more than likely be the same on the A4.
    As for VW, think they have a different connector.

    Same on A4 as long as it is 98 onwards with the 13 pin plug, not the 8 pin.
