    Another CD changer problem

    I have a 2003 Legacy GT and never had a problem with the audio until. I finished playing a CD in the 6 disc changer and it failed to switch to the next CD. The radio came back on. I hit the CD button and it appeared as though it was activating CD1 it whirred and clicked and then reset to radio. I hit the eject button, nothing. Held it down for Eject All, nothing.
    Five minutes prior to this it worked fine. Now I can't play anything, can't eject and it won't let me do anything at all with the CD's. I would appreciate any help or tips beyond going to my dealer as I have already investing $ 1200 in this car in the last month.

    I had a similar problem with my 6-disc unit from an STi. I took it apart and checked the motorized arm. Looked like it was off its track so I just re-aligned it and presto.

    If worse comes to worse there are many people who sell these units for under $80 and it takes about 10 mins to swap over.

    This is the unit I have.



    I took apart an old Alpine I had when the face plate was stolen back in high school.

    OK, thanks. Worst comes to worst, if it doesn't work there is a guy near me with one cheap.
