Trunk-mounted CD changer

The cover is held in place by the usual clips. Work carefully with a wide-bladed tool to pry up a corner of the cover and then work your way around to loosen the others.

[email protected] Funny you should just post on this, ten years ago I ordered a new cartridge from Acura and took the car to a stereo shop and had them get my old one out. Just last week I had a problem with an error code and couldn't remove the cartridge, but I worked it a little bit and it popped out. I used some silicone spray on a rag and wiped the side of the cartridge with it before I put it back in and it appears to be working fine. Wished I would have asked how to remove the cover when I paid the guy, Sorry I can't be of more help but if you take it to a stereo shop it shouldn't cost you much to have them get your cartridge out.

rawkluvah Hello, I see that it has been some years now. I am having this problem as well. Were you able to find a solution? I don't see how to remove the CD Changer cover. I do have a diagram I found online that shows each step following the removal of the cover to remove the changer, but if I can't get there without ruining the cover I'm not going to go forward as you also stated.

2000RL Thanks! I checked the Williams Electric site before but did not check out the Legend write-up. I will try that. Acura had problems early with this magazine. If you order a new magazine for your changer you will find that the part number has been changed. Which tells me they went with an different magazine.

MonsterSmash Check out the link below. It shows the instructions for a Legend and it appears to be pretty simple. I would guess it should be pretty close.

I've been thinking about taking mine out to get it repaired as CDs skip.

Removing Trunk Mounted CD Changer

I have a 2000 RL with the trunk-mounted CD Changer. Like many early RL owners the CD magazine is stuck and will not eject. I want to remove the whole changer so I can work on getting the old magazine out. I have done a lot of research and have not found anything online yet. I can see no obvious screws, clips, or hardware of any kind on the CD Changer enclosure in the trunk. Has anyone had this experience? I DO-NOT want to destroy the enclosure trying to get the changer out. At this point I'm "clueless" and any help would be appreciated.
