I just bought a used 2004 VW Beetle Convertible. It comes with a standard radio with a cassette player. I would like to install a standard radio with a cd player instead. They have radio/cd players in other vw beetle models. Can you tell me where I could find a used vw radio/cd player for this car?

i am a vw tech there is a fuse on the back of the radio if it is not bad you need a radio now if you go aftermarket when installing the radio clip the brown wire and tape it off or this will cause communication isues with the control modules
VW managed to fit the battery in the very last bit of space available. There is a bolt in the front that clamps the front edge down. Once it is unclamped, you'll need to unbolt the power steering reservoir to make room to get it out. If you don't use a "data saver" on the cables, you will need to enter the radio security code and possibly re-adapt the throttle body.
VW is short of volkswagen. Thank you.
Likely have a Monsoon radio system in your 2000 Beetle. The CD changer is controlled by your radio, and not any CD changer will connect to the outlet in your trunk. You can either find a CD changer on eBay (or elsewhere, or swap out your radio for a radio from a newer VW Beetle that has a CD player installed instead of the cassette. Can also find those on eBay.
All CD players should fit. There is a curved panel that is usually supplied by the installation company, such as Best Buy, which will be snapped over the CD player once installed -- this will cover the gaps on the sides of the CD player.
