If you have the bill go back to Best Buy. The installers should not render factory equipment useless because they made a mistake in installation. The fact they unplugged the changer is proof they knew they messed up. The navigation unit should have a serial # and it should be on their records. If you get a hassle, direct them to your listing here at Fixya. The more people read this the worst Best Buy looks.

They should just pull out! Hold the stereo firmly against the dash and pull the removal keys out! Also have you forgotten the radio that why you need the serial number because I have used this service on, they email the code to you from the serial number!

How to change air cond. filter lexus gs300 2000, has 6 disc cd changer where everyone says filter is.

It should be behind the glove box which you have to remove to get access to the filter door.
Is the CD changer directly behind the glove box ? Because in my car the changer is above the main part of the box, not behind it.

Hi i have a RX300 and need to remove the radio/CD changer as it needs to be repaired. How do I remove it?

Go to Lexus and ask for stereo removal tool. Most cars you need a special tool and once you use that it should just slide out

Jammed cd

Remove the cd player, or have a best buy installastion center do it. The cd can only be removed with the deck out of the dash, if it's jammed that bad.

Cd changer not playing

Check fuses. There are two fuses to this stereo. One that hold memory for the clock and stereo preset buttons and one for turning the stereo on. There are usually two fuse boxes, on inside the vehicle and one under the hood near the car's battery. Again, check ALL fuses. One is usually labeled for the radio/stereo, the other is not.
As for the CD changer, disconnect one of the main car battery terminals for several minutes. This is easier then removing the changer and acts as a reset. Possibley bringing the changer back to working condition. Otherwise, this could be a repair issue, see

Access to 2004 Audi A4 radio; purpose: connect USB/MP3 interface

Nope - you need the radio removal keys. You should see some small holes or slots near the edge of the faceplate - there are keys that go into them to unlock the radio. A stereo shop will have them - they may even pull the deck for you if you ask nicely. Only takes a few seconds, and it saves you having to buy the keys.
