    Thread: How to eject CD Magazine in factory cd changer

    1. 07-10-2010 04:54 PM #1
      I have a 2004 Touareg that had the factory NAV and cd changer in the rear. I replaced my headunit and they disconnected the factory changer to use the iPod connector. They left the cd magazine in the changer and it now is disconnected and has no power so I can't get the magazine out. Is there a force eject somewhere or can I put a 12 v power supply to the changer's plug temporarily to power it up and eject? Thanks.

      Yes, you will need to get power to it again to eject the magazine.

      Thanks, I fixed it. I needed to connect + power to the brown/red wire and -power to the brown wire.

      Did you jack in power at the changer, or just reconnect it up at the head unit? As I had done the same thing. I installed the VW iPod adaptor, and forgot that I still had a disc in the changer. Thank goodness I only allow backup discs in the car (well except the DVD Nav disc, as I never did figure out how to back that one up.)

      I connected the power at the changer. I disconnected the changer output connector that plugs into the wiring harness, and then put the power to the changer part of the connector on the pins identified. AFter it was out, I just plugged the 2 connectors back together. Good luck.
