    The unit in question is a built-in indash 6 disc cd player. using cds with homemade 'sticker' labels will melt with the heat of the cd player and gum up within the player. the player will then shut down. there is no 'paper clip' hole.... or at least, i don't see one. any tips? Subaru dealer doesn't do stereos. Car stereo installation place won't touch it either.

    Have you tried letting the unit cool down and then try again?

Drop the faceplate, there should be a tiny hole you can push a paper clip in. push in a little bit and it should eject. good luck

The CD player/changer in my car is not loading or ejecting the CD's. When I push the load or eject button, it makes a grinding sound. It was playing fine yesterday but since I left a CD inside the CD...


I just acquired the same problem. I tried to put a new CD in and it wouldn't take it. I ended up pushing it in when I was trying to get it back out and now it won't play the CD, or eject it. I think it could be stuck between tracks, but they want $188 to look at it and fix it even if it is a simple fix. I am looking for suggestions also, Diane

CD player is not working.


I would first try removing the fuse to the radio/cd player, see if that resets the system and get the cd out.

Hope this helps some.

Envoy 2004 cd player


I had same problem with a 2005 Envoy in Jan '09. I took it to the ex-GM dealer. He said he'd try. The unit would only play using radio.
Mechanic took unit out of dash, and top off of unit. Ejected CD bu moving the eject mechanism. Replaced top and unit.
Works and plays cds. Cost $25.00 And i tipped the mechanic $10.00 for his knowledge.

6 disc CD changer is stuck


This happened to me a few years ago. It wouldn't eject the CD for a year. I literally smacked the side of the dash where the cd player is located and it came out the next time I pressed eject. I found that same solution in a couple of forums. I had to do it a few times. I think the CD just has to allign with something to eject properly.
