Can I install a a 2007 Camry CD/Radio unit in my 2002 Camry?
I can probably go to an Auto parts store and look up the connector specs for my 2002 Camry Radio/CD/cassette player, but since I happened to come across this site here's my question. Since my 2002 Camry CD player does not play MP3 CDs, I wanted to replace it. I came across someone selling an original 2007 Camry Radio/CD player on eBay since he/they swapped it for a Navi system. I called a local Toyoto dealer parts dept and was told that as long as the connectors match, I should be able to install the newer unit. Can any expert confirm that the connectors of my above 2002 player are the same as the one from the 2007 unit? Thanks for a quick reply.

I had the error code no. 1 in my 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It has the CD radio unit with JBL system. It will not eject the CD, or play it. I removed the entire radio/CD unit and replaced it with a used excellent unit bought off of ebay for $100, and the replacement works fine. However the replacement is also 7 years old. Therefore I would not be surprised if it failed again. Prior to the error 1 I had intermittent error 3 codes, which had the same effect: no playing of the CD, unable to eject, and unable to insert other CDs. Sometimes the error codes would go away, and the function would be normal. But once it started, I think it was on a downhill path. A new replacement is nearly $2000. Used are about $100 to $200 or more depending on the seller and condition of the unit. Youtube has videos on how to replace the unit which only requires simple tools: it is not difficult but takes about 45 minutes to an hour. If you do it you have to put the car in gear to move the gear shift gate, which requires the car to be on, so you should have the parking brake on for safety. One alternative is to send your unit to a repair company but that might cost more than simply replacing the unit. Good luck!
You'll p[robably have to remove the radio, open it up and manually extract the CD. This may be a dificult repare if you're not somewhat mechanical. I've had to remove one in a similiar situation. I just started removing panel to get to the radio, then the radio. You can probably take your car to a good auto radio shop and they can remove it for you. They will want to sell you a new radio and not attempt to extract the CD. Good luck.
for the most part there is a diagram under the hood showing you how the belt goes on try this website to see if they have you car listed its www.autozone.com and you can also check at the auto parts store where you are going to get the new belts to see if they have a diagram for your car
You have to have special ford radio tools. they look like two horse shoes. they clip into the two holes on either side of the radio and then you push outwards and pull on the clips at the same time and the radio slides right out. the tools are usually inexpensive and can probably be found at local auto parts store
This is pretty easy on the MX5 - just a matter of removing the existing unit and replacing it with one you want. It might pay to take a bit of a note about which cables were which before you do it - otherwise it might be a bit of trial and error!
One of the easier jobs to do - make sure you check you've got the required connectors - if you need new ones, auto or electrical stores stock them - you'll probably need to get a crimping/wire stripping tool as well.
