    Same problem....I have a 2002 VW Golf.



1 Answer

I took mine off yesterday to fit an aftermarket mp3 stereo in my mark 5 & what a hassle!!
it basically clicks in place so carefully undo the clippings by inserting some scissors or a screwdriver under the plastic bit & peeling it back. that will reveal two screws which you can undo.
then you have to lift the top bit which contains the vents for the heating system & try and force the clips back with that. pretty tricky but just needs a bit of force.
once this is done there are four other screws that need to be undone & the whole system just slides out...
easy once you've done it but then the big problem starts...
the connections are all different so you need to get some new radio & cd connectors to adapt the aftermarket stereo with the cars standard wiring!!!

I cannot eject the CD from the CD player

Next to the CD slot you might see a small hole, about the size of a paper clip end. If fitted, this is the manual emergency eject. Stick the end of a paper clip squarely into it, and push. This should release the CD tray and present the edge of the CD.

If not fitted you will have to remove the whole unit from the dash and then take off the casing, to recover the CD.

In any case the player is likely to be bricked now, so it is a good opportunity to fit a new unit.

You will need to remove the player from the dash to get the CD out. Remove the player and then remove the cover from the player. You should be able to get the CD out.

Cd player will not eject

A common failure of magazine-type CD changers is that a CD gets stuck in transit between the magazine and the player mechanism. It may be necessary to remove the unit and disassemlbe it to solve the problem.

The CD Player in my VW Golf 2002 modelis

Without knowing the model of radio fitted to your car I would make the following assumptions

The CD Player is Locked Out:


Because the battery has been disconnected and the clearing sequence in your handbook was not followed correctly you may have to wait several hours between attempts to unlock it and you will need the original code at hand as a fail safe


The CD player is from another VW car and the on-board code in the memory does not match that one.


You need to look out the little book that came with the car and read up on clearing the code for that particular model.

Last resort is a VW Dealer who should provide assistance free of charge , according to the handbook

6 CD Multichanger

Hello There.

My guess would be that your sat nav was retro fitted, i'e not factory fitted. Who ever fitted it didn't use the correct wiring harness. It seems they may have used a wiring harness which didn't have the connection for a CD changer.

If you want to get this fixed you will need to replace the wiring harness which means stripping out the entire interior of your car, i.e seats, carpet, door panel. or you can live with the single CD which works.

If my answer has solved your problem, please rate me on fixya.

Thank you

Emissionwiz is correct, this is just a matter of getting everything lined up.
Regarding the stuck CD, try this: Remove the radio from the dash. UNPLUG all of the connectors behind the radio. Wait for 1 minute. Then plug them all back in. See if the radio "comes back to life". I encounter this situation quite often, 9 time out of 10 I can bring the radio back on, and then eject the CD. Also note that Camry CD players really HATE "burnt" or "copied" CDs. These types of Cds stick in the player all of the time.
