1 - Remove the cup holder. Open the cup holder completely. There is a small button to press in the middle. Pull it out.
2 - Remove the small piece of trim above the cup holder slot. This just pulls out.
3 - Remove 2 screws holding the console faceplate. They are at the bottom.
4 - Remove the console faceplate. Pull on the handle in between where you just removed the screws.
5 - Remove 2 screws holding in the DVD changer. Pull the DVD changer out - you'll need to use a bit of force, but pull it straight out.
6 - Unplug the 2 cables plugged in to the back of the DVD changer. Remove the unit and take it in the house to a well lit table work area.
7 - Remove the 1 screw from the top plate of the DVD changer.
8 - Remove the 4 screws around the sides of the faceplate. Gently remove the face plate. There are tabs holding it in place.
9 - Remove 5 screws holding the housing around the DVD player. Lift the player out of the housing.
10 - Disconnect the ribbon cable between the player and the housing. There is a slider which holds the ribbon securely. Slide that back and the ribbon comes out.
11 - Remove the 5 tiny scres holding the top plate on the DVD player. These are very tiny. You'll need a precision screwdriver. One screw is under a piece of plastic on the side.
12 - Disconnect the motor cable on the side. Use a small precision screwdriver to disconnect the wires and pull them forward out of the guidance notch,
13 - Remove the top plate of the DVD player internals.
14 - You can now lift the DVD's out of the player. To remove them from the spindle be very careful.
15 - Press the white center of the spindle and you can turn the DVD's off the spindle. There are thin metal spacers between each DVD. Be careful as you remove them. The center spindle is threaded like a screw, so turn the DVDs and spaces off carefully.
16 - Re-assemble the spacers onto the center spindle by aligning the 3 nothces on the spacers with the holes in the top of the spindle. Turn 1/2 turn and the holes in the spindle line up to insert the next spacer. Continue until all 6 spacers are on the spindle. The spacers should have the pressure pins going down.
17 - Put the center spindle back in place in the DVD player. It only fits one way.
18 - Put the top cover back on. Be very careful to align the teeth in the gears in the cover with the gears inside the player.
19 - Re-connect the wire to the motor with a precision scredriver and guide the 2 wires back into their guide channel.
20 - Re-connect the ribbon cable. Open the slot by sliding the connecter back, insert the ribbon cable, and push the connecter to secure the cable.
21 - Re-insert the DVD into the housing. Re-install the 5 screws.
22 - Re-attach the face plate and 4 screw.
23 - Re-attach the top plate.
24 - Put the unit back into the slot in the dashboard. Reconnect the 2 cables. When you push it back into place fully it will require some force. Put the 2 screws back in.
25 - Re-attach the dash face plate. Put the 2 screws back in.
26 - Put the molding piece back on and insert the cup holder. Both just slide into place.

Look around the face plate for a very small hole...use a straightened paperclip or equivalent and press in a few inches...its a manuel door release and you should gain access to at least the loading tray.

The cost to repair it will cost you more then to just buy a used one from a auto wrecker.

Have 2002 town and country, the dvd player has issues, when i put a dvd in it the little light flashes and then reads error, will do that to about 20 to 25 disc then will play one. not good when i have 3...

There really isn't anything you can do yourself, other than cleaning the lens using a cd/DVD player lens cleaning disk. Also check that the disks you are using are clean and free of scratches. If the player still doesn't work right, you will have to get it serviced at the dealer. Some electronics repair shops will also service these players, but you will have to remove it from the vehicle yourself. Hope this helps. Good luck.

IOD fuse location in a 1996 Chrysler town and Country?

It's in the fuse box under the hood by the battery. Open the box. It's the one at the front and farthest to the driver's side. Should be a yellow 20 amp fuse. Removing it will kill the radio, navigation and multi disc player.

Disc stuck in factory installed DVD player

needs a new disc changer. Something is wrong internally. You will be able to get them back if you go to the dealership and get an exchange unit. They will send the discs back when they remanufacture the unit.
