CD player not loading/unloading and clicking. (Not the clear gear cover) HELP

2692 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Raymond UK
The CD player in my 2006 93 vert does not accept CD's and makes a clicking sound when trying to insert/eject.

Taken it out and stripped it down a little to see if the clear plastic cover for the gears had snapped as that seems to be a common problem. Cover is all in tact and all the gears underneath run fine.

After some searching I found this thread on here which sounds promising but all the images have disappeared due to Photobucket starting to charge for hosting I guess.

Any pointers people?

Thanks in advance

Excellent. Thank you!

I'll whip it back out one night and have another look.
I've given up on this repair and installed a 6-disc in dash changer instead... :p
Excellent - is it easy to swap the changer for the single CD player? That is a simple upgrade I was thinking of as well, but not sure how reliable these in dash players are, and what sort of price I should pay for one from a scrap car.

Does it need Tech2?
It's a straight swap.

Take out the climate panel and the ashtray and you can just slide the CD player and AMP out. It does need adding via Tech2. You either have a single disc or a 6 disc player.

Some say these are a bit temperamental in colder weather but mine has been fine.

I paid £70 for mine including adding with Tech2 and 1 year warranty.


Also comes with 6 eject buttons which means more lights... :cool:
