 "Why is keeping it factory the best?"
(or at least a very good idea!)
Shouldn't I just buy a used one?

Equipment Removal Tips

In Dash 6 Disc Changer

    Some of the problems that we have repaired are:

  • Not switching to CD Changer when you press the CD button
  • Won't eject, load, or play CD's - what to do to get my cd's out?
  • Loud clicking each time you start the vehicle
  • Loads then says error and ejects the cd
  • I used a cd with a label or sticker on it (from library, church, or other) now jammed
  • Coins and other stuff put in cd changer
  • Error Codes  
  • Skipping or Pausing of CD being played
  • Other problems (E-mail us with specifics)


Easy steps for the repair.

  • You have many options with something that isn't working properly. The first step is to understand why you would want to repair instead of replace the unit. See "Why is repairing a good option"

  • Verify where the problem is and what needs to be repaired. Many times this is obvious (like on cd players that skip) but sometimes not so clear like sound that comes and goes (is it speaker, the amp, or stereo). Email a tech if you need help with figuring out where the problem is.

  • Review our estimate info here.

  • Remove it or have someone remove it for you. 

  • Print off the Send in form to enclose with the changer (all info needed is on the form, address, email, etc.)

  • Wrap it good with some bubble-wrap to protect.

  • All the carriers deliver here (UPS, USPS, FedEx, etc.) Allow under 1 week for the repair, we'll contact you if need a few days longer for parts ordering.

  • Note: We will return everything that is sent in whether it's cd's or brackets, all will be kept together.

 


Here are general removal tips, specific tips are linked from the vehicles model page when available.

OEM Stereos do not require removing the knobs or faceplates as they did decades ago. They generally come out to the front as a complete stereo. The brackets that hold them in are usually just hidden by the dash trim that surrounds it. These panels generally have a couple well hidden screws holding them and then they usually will unsnap off, carefully. Once the stereo is out away from the dash you will see the connectors have a tab type lock to squeeze and release to unplug them.
