      The factor CD changer in my wife's 1996 died recently. Radio & cassette work fine but CD player skips erratically on good discs. Need recommendation on 1) viability of repair or 2) drop in replacement. Don't want to spend a fortune. Thanks

      I've got the factory changer out of my 99 Xlt. I've been trying to sell it, $100 and I'll pay shipping.

      Here are some pics:

      96 vs. 99 wiring harness

      According to info I've seen, the 95-97 changers use a 16 pin connector and the 98-01 use a 20 pin connector so your '99 won't plug into my '96 harness.

      My XL2F-18C868-CA ( made in Mexico) Mach radio CD player jams about every 8 years. I put in a XL2F-18C868-BB (mad in USA) from a similar junked explorer. It too grinds and would not play after 8 years. So now I have 2 working radios but both of their CD players only make a grinding noise when I put a CD in. I have the CD players out and ready to fix now..

      I saw somewhere on these forums where this could be fixed by cleaning a band connector on the CD player. Can anyone let me know where that description is?
