Stuffed Cd Changer


Recommended Posts

Hi People

It's my first post here, I have owned a IS200 for over a year now and never had a problem with it but last week i got the dreaded error message on the CD changer. I have tried everything including sticking an old cd into the slot and pressing the eject button but nothing worked. I also had the bad news from Lexus that it was not under warranty any more. I decided to remove the unit from the car and strip it down.

Well i don't think any amount of hitting or poking would have made it work when i finaly got into the cd magazine It looked like a bomb had gone of inside there where springs lying around loose and several bits of brocken plastic inside it's a total write off! :crybaby:

The good news is I did manage to retreive my three stuck cd's! :)

A warning to others though it does look like sticking an old cd in the slot an inch or two did make things WORSE!

Does anybody know where i can get a working unit, has anyone got one for sale. Also how much would one from lexus cost?

thanks

Al

Ok, i will PM you with some details etc.

I wanted to keep the original look of the car as aftermarket units never look as good as factory fitted in my opinion

By the way it was a top slot one. When i opened it up the mechanisum looked very flimsy and as if it would break easily anyway.

The unit is back in the car as i now have the pleasure of good old radio 2 during the morning commute! but when i get it out i will post some pics of the inside. It's really a mess.
