    So just took delivery on #3135 and the CD player keeps making noise as if there’s a CD stuck inside. I pressed the eject button but nothing comes out. Any help would be appreciated. Thx

    When you start it, does it sound like it cycles over and over and over...then it just stops?

    Just be careful with it, the radio is pretty unique to the car. Lot's of them look very similar, but have a bit of a different face plate.

    I did it back in 2014, so my memory is fuzzy. I recall cutting a wire coat hanger into two “U” shaped tools. There are slots in the front corners that require a couple of tools like I made to be inserted to release the head unit. Once it slides forward, you can unclip the harnesses from the back.

    Had to buy the tool to remove. Piece of cake! Brought down to UPS today. Hopefully I’ll get it back by next weekend.

    The tools are bent right and will not scratch your 500-800 93 cd player....
