BODY:

The CD Changer installed in the glove compartment of my car has ceased to function for several years already (it failed to recognize CDs in the 6 disc magazine). Today, after a few google searches, I found a discussion forum that has just the information I was looking for, a potential fix for the problem a lot of people have experienced in their Alpine CD changers. So, I decided to give it a try! For better or for worse.


First, I removed the changer from the glove compartment. That was a fairly easy task of unplugging 2 wiring connectors, since my changer wasn't properly secured to the glove compartment (missing mounting bracket/screws).


Now, with the changer sitting on my desk, remove the screws on the side of the changer as shown below.



Then, pop out the plastic clips to remove the front panel.



Then, remove the springs that suspends the internal casing for anti-vibration using a long nose plier.



Then, remove the 4 rubber bushings by hand, and open up the case as shown below.



Now, the actual repair/adjustment. On the lower left hand side of the picture below, you will see this worm/wheel drive gear. There was a small gap between them, causing the worm to not driving the gear, and therefore, failed to pick up the CD.



To adjust it, I first loosen the screw that's holding the gear in place, using one screw driver to push it closer to the worm gear, while using another screw driver to tighten the screw. I used my hand to rotate the worm a little bit to test out the operation.


Then, I reversed the steps and closed up the case and place the changer back into the car. It worked! Now, I can listen to CDs again :) All-in-all, it took about one hour of work, and saved myself about $300 of repair bill.


Now, if I can find a way to repair the power antenna in the other car... part of the antenna was broken , so radio reception was extremely poor... I have found some exploded views of the parts, and hopefully I can take it apart and be able to order just the required parts, to save me another $350 (or save me $600 if I let my friendly dealer do the honor).

Thanks, I followed your repair it worked great. You should really say the repair saved you $300 on a new unit, I doubt a repair facitity would charge that much to fix it.

Thanks for your comment! Glad it worked out for you! For 1 hour of work, shops should probably charge $75-150 based on their hourly rate. But, I found this place that repairs this particular changer for a flat rate of $295 http://www.carstereohelp.com./ Ouch! Maybe I can also make some money repairing changers :)




I purchased my changer for about $350 5-6 years ago. Probably due to the weak dollar, the price of a new unit has climbed to about $800 (from performanceproducts.com).

Thanks for the posting. It will be very helpful, if only I can get my CD changer out of the glovebox. Can somebody please tell me how to remove it. I also have a CD holder with pop-out shelves next to the changer in the glovebox.

Thanks

Hennie, not sure if this is similar to what you have, there is instruction to remove the cd holder on http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w245-b-class/1356322-cd-holder-removal-info-required-3.html




"For any one interested the CD holder is held in by plastic clips in square holes and to remove the holder all you have to do is push the 'lips' on the front 2 clips and the back ones 'Hinge' out of their location holes."




Here are the pictures (in case you are not a forum member and cannot view them)

I am not sure how to remove the cd changer itself. Supposely, they are held by 4 screws on 2 brackets that look like this http://www.adelcom.net/MERCEDES_merc-brkt.htm.




If you don't mind paying $2.99 there are instructions for many cars at http://www.carstereohelp.com./stereoremoval.htm. I am not related to this web site and don't have experience purchasing from them.

I am having a VERY SIMILAR problem with the same model cd changer, as it doesn't seem to be

recognizing the cd's, but with mine each cd is being loaded and returned back to the magazine

until all 6 have gone through. Then it stops and altogether and doesn't run through them

again. It looks like the the gears that move the (laser track?) are moving but the tracking

mechanism doesn't move back and forth. Obviously I don't know ANYTHING about electronics but

after reading these posts I do know that I'm not having the same problem with the same worm gear.

Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED ! b/c I've HAD IT with this and I'm sure it's an easy fix

for anyone out there reading this :)




Thanks!

Jody, you might be having the same problem as I did. I failed to mention, for me, each cd was being loaded and returned back, and at the end, it displayed "magazine empty" (or something like that). Not sure if you also have the "magazine empty" message. If you did, then the problem could be the same. Hope it helps!

THANK YOU for replying! After it runs through all 6 disks it says Disk 0 Track 0.

But that worm/wheel drive gear is aligned and functioning as it should, it just

looks like the other gears aren't working properly (where that one piece slides

back and forth) It's not a worm/wheel drive gear, but looks like 3 'regular'

gears lined up next to each other. (sorry for this vague description!!)

I've been on the internet for hours and your site is the very closest I've come

to my problem.

Thanks for your input and time

Actually no. The tracking mechanism doesn't move the laser back and forth, although if I move the gears manually without the motor on, they do work and the laser lens moves back and forth like it should. The 3 gears that move the tracking mechanism don't

move. So could it be that motor? It's hard for me to explain when I don't know anything about electronics! The 3rd gear, that's attached to the tracking mech. spins

for a second, then stops, but the two that it's attached to (1 of them being attached to the motor) don't move at all. Maybe the way to fix it is to go on ebay and get a stereo with an iPod hook up!

I recently purchased a 99 C230 for my son. It was missing the cartridge for the cd changer, so I bought a new one thinking that would take care of it. The changer powers up and loads a cd when I insert the cartridge, but if I select cd at the head unit I get the message "NO CD Changer"




Any ideas?

The changer for 99 is different than the one I have. Yours is mounted in the trunk and is probably made by Becker.




There are a few things to try:

1. Check out http://www.mercedesforum.com/m_56107/tm.htm Disconnecting it from the power source and reconnecting it 1-5 minutes later. OR, unplug/replug the fuse corresponding to the cd changer/radio if you can find it. You may need to have your radio code in case it was requested after power disconnect (theft deterrant feature of the radio).

2. Try to disassemble the cd changer like what I did.

3. Take it to a audio store. Not sure how much they will charge to look at it. The stores around here ask for $75-150 to look into it.

4. search ebay or craigslist for a used changer for around $200-250,

A203 820 9089 MC3010

A002 820 7989 MC3198

and replace it. some info at http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w202-c-class/1176005-mc3010-cd-changer-install-99-c230k.html




Good luck!

I have everything apart, on the workbench. Ready for reassembly. What is the trick to get the rubber bushing vibration isolators back on their posts? They won't go on! Everytime I think I have them on the right side correctly they pop off when I start to work on the left side!

I remember the 4 rubber bushings were easily held by the small metal posts. The part that took me the most time was to put back the little springs for the suspension. I used a long nose plier for that.

Hi I disassembled my CD CHANGER slightly different case construction 2 plastic clips fell out on the interior of the case. I have only a guess as to where they should be on re-installation.




Please see the following post for photos of the missing clips.

I have messed with mine and not sure which way it goes ......

Tom - my changer is horizontal mounted in the globe box. I don't have the spec, but from the look of it, if you have vertical trunk mounted changer, you should set the spring on the other end. The springs are uses as suspension and should look vertical when the changer is mounted. Hope it helps.




David - Becker and Alpine are 2 different part suppiers of OEM cd changers. Sorry I don't have those 2 clips on my changer.




Michelle - Sorry, I am not sure, but sounds like the connection to the stereo system was unplugged.

I have a 2003 ML350 that keeps coming back "Mag Empty" with the mag full of CDs. I followed your instructions to the letter and when I reinstalled it it said "no cd player installed" so I powered off the headunit and then back on and the cd started playing. I selected cd2 and nothing then cd3 nothing. It came back with the same error of "mag empty" again. The fact that it worked for a second tells me that it can be fixed but before I go through the process again, is there something I may have missed to that I can do to keep the thing going?




any help you can give would be appreciated.




Thanks

I bought a 99 Honda Accord and it had this unit in the trunk. It even came with CD's from that time frame. I followed your instuctions and I could tell that the worm gear was the problem. I found it easier to install the rubber stabilizers on the unit before putting it back in the frame.

I did mine as guided, it works now. Only a minor recommendation that you may remove the suspend springs after removal of 4 rubber bushings, as the spring fall off themself. The gap is so tiny not obvious at all, but it is there. Once you had all of steps done, it works.

I had similar problems. I have a 1999 C280, and the CD changer right from the beginning was flaky. The problem started when the car was still under warranty and the CD changer would intermittently report NO CD in a slot when there was a CD. I took it to the MB dealer who did not find any problem with the CD. But last week, the CD quit completely always reporting "Magazine Empty". Today I finally had the nerve to take apart the CD changer following Miko's directions. I did not find anything obviously wrong. I moved all the gears by hand, especially the big black one that loads and unloads the CD into the changer. I put it back together and it works like a charm.




I think there was some dirt in there that stopped the loading mechanism from moving.




In putting back the covers. I ruptured two of the rubber bushings that hold the changer in the assembly and some white gooey stuff came out. I hope it will not cause any problems.




I would like to thank Miko for the excellent directions. I guess I saved myself few hundred Dollars! Thanks Miko!

Adjusted CD player as outlined. Now instead of "No Magazine" message I get "No CD Player" Followed suggestion to turn on radio, turned it off, remove power and fiber optic cable, turn on and off radio. Replaced both cables. Still get the same "No CD Player" message. Also pulled fuse and replaced it. Same problem.




Is there a way to reboot the radio? I have the code to reset it.




Suggestions appreciated.

I can't thank you enough for this information. While the model CD player I have is slightly different than yours (mine is from a 1997 Jag XK8), the problem was the same and the model of the CD players were close enough that I figured i had nothing to lose.




The fix I needed was slightly different as well. Instead of having to get the wheel gear closer to the worm gear, the worm gear had actually slipped further away from the drive motor than it should have been. This caused the whole CD loading drive mechanism to lock up totally. A slight push with a small screwdriver on the end of the worm drive popped it back into place and the whole thing is working perfectly again.




But I would have never even gotten to that point (or even had the courage to try) without the information above. Thank you again and I know you just saved me at least $600, if not more.




By the way, now my wife thinks I'm a genius. So let's keep this whole thing between us, 'k?

Thanks Man, I used your guidelines to fix the stuck #2tray in my wife's BMW 328i. Also

a 6 disc changer. Although I just removed the front plastic plate by pushing in the 4 tabs on the bottom and then removed the 4 top screws. The whole top then come be pulled off (no removal of spring or rubber dampers was necessary). Then turned the big black plastic gear which reinserted the tray . Then turned the smaller plastic gear behind the cartridge all the way until the cartridge popped out. Sweet.

WOW!! I had the exact problem as others. It would not receive the discs, but just run through saying "empty mag". I would have never even thought to do my own electrical repair unless you had posted this! I was about to give up, but this is exactly what mine looked like. It took about 1.5 hours to do the repair, put it back, test it, realize it had broken again... take it apart and redo the repair, replace it - test it and TADA!!! SUCCESS! Finally off of my to do list. (And we thought it was because I put the magazine in wrong - even though the little tab at the end was completely broken off!) THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I just found your blog. I'm wondering if my cd changer is having the same problem (glove compartment 6 disc changer in a 2003 c230k.. is that alpine?). For awhile now it might skip during songs, and not due to bumpiness of road or anything. Then it would be fine for another long while, then skip a lot or go silent for a good few seconds in the middle of songs. Now it seems to be having trouble recognizing there's CDs in the magazine. Does this sound like a similar problem? Should I try to take apart the changer as you did? No experience fixing any car stereo problem at all, but if this is what I must do, then so be it! Do not want to give someone several hundred dollars if it's something fairly easy to fix. =)

Amy, my car is 2001 C320, so it might be the same or similar unit. Skipping might be due to dirty lens that could be cleaned with CD lens cleaner disc or other products. If the CD fails to recognize there are CDs in the magazine (probably says magazine empty or something like that), then you can try to follow my instructions.

I have followed the instructions in this post and it really worked for me. The only problem is that after a few days woorking fine, the charger fails again. I have opened it a total of 6 times so I guess it may be worth changing that part for a new one.




Does anyone know where can I order this part or the part number please?




Thanks

  1. Miko -

    My car is a Mercedes CLK200, and has the same CD player as you have been describing. Could you please explain two things to me?

    1. How do you access the connections to check that everything is plugged in as it should be?

    2. How do you remove the unit from the glove box?

    Mine reads 'No CD 1-6' and the 6CD cartridge is stuck in its slot. The eject button lights up when I press it, but flashes for ten seconds and then stops. Can you advise, please? Many thanks,

  2. Brian, my changer was installed (incorrectly) without the bracket to begin with... After removing the bracket, I remember there was only 1 fiber optic cable connecting to the changer. There is a post here about removing the bracket: http://www.mbworld.org/forums/clk-class-w209/138389-how-remove-cd-changer-glove-box.html

  3. Same problem as Brian---No Cartridge and CD=6 was stuck int he slot, eject button lights up and flashes. I simply removed the fuse for a minute and tried one more time, and after choking a bit it finally ejected.

  4. Thank you for the very detailed and complete instructions! The changer in my wife's truck failed last week. Following the procedure outlined here allowed me to fix it - at least for now. It's a good thing, since Alpine doesn't even make CD changers anymore. I'll need to talk her into an iPod some time, but not quite yet.

  5. Miko, I have 2 cables on the back of my changer - I can get the fiber optic one out but the second one (smaller black one) is firmly stuck in there. Is there a trick to getting it out? Thanks!

    This is fantastic. Thank you for all your help. I have an MC3010 CD Changer from a 2002 Mercedes CLK320. I opened my CD changer before but couldn't find the problem. I saw your blog and thought why not try it. Guess what! It worked. You saved me a lot of money. I've been looking to buy a new one, and nothing less than $175. If you wanna repair it, it will cost $130 minimum. I usually don't follow blogs too much, but this one is very real.

    Thanks Miko.
