hey guys,

i have a '97 xlt, and my stock cd changer went defunk. it swallowed the magazine and wouldn't spew it out, and the stereo thinks there's no cd in. i kept pressing the eject button and it just makes a moaning sound and wouldn't eject the magazine. has anyone else had this problem? am i stuck w/ replacing the changer?

Same thing happened to mine once. I watched the Ford tech guy and he took the changer apart and pulled te magazine out. Now since I knew the tech real well, he gave me a new changer, but I do not know if it really needed "replacing" or not. That new changer is still sitting in my closet. I am going to all Alpine as soon as I can find me a good custom installer. I still have the extended warranty coverage on my 98, saved me many times already. I ALWAYS buy the ESP for my Fords.

mine actually worked really well until just recently when the caddy stuck. i thought it sounded great. if i get a different afermarket changer i'd want one that fits into the center console, and the only ones i found in crutchfield are alpine and kenwoods. any recommendations? i'd prefer to just get the same one, for $ reasons. where can i find these oem changers?

Will it work in a 97? Not sure of what will work with different years. Also, does it have the mounting bracket and magazine?
