Question about 2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

1 Answer

I was told that the laser in my 2002 C240 6 disc changer is weak. It came with the car, and its in the glove compartment, I was told its alpine, and it has the mercedes logo on it. I was quoted $200 to fix it and was wondering if it was just cheaper to buy a new one. Can someone help me? Thank you

Mercedes has had issues with their cd changers for years. The price they quoted you is not to bad actually as a brand new Mbz cd changer can be a little pricey. If you buy a new one they will ask for your old one as a core so make sure to ask for a reconditioned one. They call it reconditioned because the housings are not brand new but all the interior components are. Your stock cd changer has the connection for the fiber optic wires. If you go with aftermarket you will lose that connection and will not be able to control the cd player from the radio or the steering wheel controls.

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.

How do I change the cabin air filter on my 2002 Toyota Avalon XLS ?


The cabin air filter is actually pretty easy to change. Here are the steps:
  1. Set the air conditioning system to Recirculation. The case for the cabin air cannot be removed with the system in the Outside Air mode.
  2. Turn the engine off.
  3. Open the Glove Compartment
  4. unclip the damper rod on the ride side of the glove compartment. To unclip it usually it is just a squeeze tab but sometimes it is a phillips head screwdriver.
  5. The glove compartment now must be squeezed together at the rear to allow the tabs to be released. Just let the glove compartment hang down.
  6. Through the glove compartment opening, locate the filter cover and remove.
  7. Remove dirty filter and replace with the new and reverse steps 1-5 to put it back together.
Shouldnt take to long usually takes me about 5 minutes to change it.

No CD changer


I wonder if the person you got the vehicle from knew there was no CD changer, but never look a gift horse in the mouth. Any brand CD changer should be able to work with your in-dash controller unit. You do not need to pay an arm and a leg to the dealer for a new unit, or risk purchasing a questionable used unit. I highly recommend Crutchfield.com for selection, price, and support.

Cd stuck in my indash changer


you can try disconnecting the battery for 10 min. to reset the system. If that dosent work then you will need to send the radio into a repair shop to have them manually remove the cd and repair the changer. (the changers are very fragle and break inside) you can send it directly to alpine to be repaired.their number is 1-800-421-2284 ex 860304
