    Also, if I have to buy a new one from FleaBay. How do I know which one is identical to mine without having to open up the car radio console first?

    IMG_6766.JPG fullsizeoutput_1e0b.jpeg fullsizeoutput_1e0c.jpeg I had no luck trying several times to reset the stuck CD error by removing the cabin ACC fuse beneath the steering wheel.
    To remove a stuck CD caused possibly by a broken ejector mechanism (?), put some double-sided tape on one side of a very thin ruler/straightedge (thin like 1/32 " or 1mm), insert into the CD player several inches with the tape side down, press the eject button, and the CD should be pressed upward inside the player into the tape. Pull the ruler out and it will draw out the CD with it.
