Hi I have a renault clio, 2004, with a cdplayer/radio (no cd changer). I put a CD in to listen to it, when I wanted to change the CD, I pressed the eject button, but I got abit impatient, so pressed it lots of times. The CD just wouldnt come out. I then switched it to the radio. But now, I cant even get the CD that is stuck inside to play. Only the radio works. The eject button doesnt make the CD come out. I have used my cd player tons of times before and have never had any problems.

What do I do? I hope I dont have to replace the whole head unit? Someone will get rep.

Thanks

this happened to me in my KA. i did eventually get the CD out, but it wouldn't play anything after that. unless you can take it to some dealer to fix it, then you will probably need to buy a new one.

paper clip
Informative, much? :p:

If you do try this, straighten out a paper clip, and there should be a small hole at the front of the radio. This should release the tray, so give poking it in that that a go. Don't stick things into the main opening if you can help it

EDIT: If this doesn't work, it's not all that difficult to remove the unit - if you do this, then make sure you disconnect the battery before removing the unit, and then you can unscrew the casing and get the CD out.

Right, does the CD still play? If it does then there should be no damage for the head unit. If it doesn't you're likely to have to get it changed. It'll be very hard getting the CD out yourself from the Clio. So you might as well take it to a garage.

I take no responsibility for this if you do actually try it out. I once managed to get a CD out of a friends CD player which was also stuck using tweezers, the CD got scratched but CD player worked fine.

Does it whir when you press the eject button? The cogs to open the tray usually connected by a rubber band type thing, and this can snap. If it whirs then it's either jammed or that doo-dah has just snapped.

If it has snapped, an electronics place should have no problem putting on a new band.

do you have removable fascia plate if so take it off and put it back on sometimes they slip and the buttons dont line up so the button is actually doing out.

Really? Because the radios in the vast majority aren't even made by the manufacturer. In fact Blaupunkt and Philips are the German and Dutch radio makes Renault uses.

Think before typing.

Trim has nothing to do with the radio alan

i mean the fashia plate thing slips so the little black prong things dont line up with the holes so the button isnt pressing anything.

^ Actually it is thesheephair, the radios are manufactured for the car, the trim (or fascia, call it what you will) are also Blaunpunkt/Philips responsibility.

If we're talking about a radio with a removable fascia I suspect it's an after market model anyway. So again, nothing to do with Renault.

Don't suppose you hold any relation to a certain troll who claimed some pictures off autotrader where his cars?

You appeared suspiciously shortly after he vanished in disgrace.

nope not in my car it doesnt....i know that for fact, the trim applied on top is fitted by mazda nothing to do with Bose

quick checks of the mx5, 530d 330d and 535d, the trim cover has nothing to do with it either

Fitting and manufacturing has nothing to do with them well on the cars ive checked, maybe its just Renault etc

And how do you know that? Bear in mind that Bose et al will print the manufacturer logo on the radio trim. It's still made by Bose.

Though from what I can see the head unit in the Mazda 6 may not be made by Bose, only the speakers and amp.
