Talking How to Ford in dash CD changer repair FIXED!!

I put together this tutorial after experiencing the no cd, cd full errors. I tried to make the guide simple enough to follow so that the average Joe could complete this repair themselves. This guide is intended for people who are experiencing the common errors and or just want to remove their cds without scratching them.

I have the tutorial in word and pdf but could not figure out how to upload so I posted it on google docs. If someone wants to post the pdf as a direct attachment let me know and I can email it. I did not proof read it after google conversion so easy on the criticism. I'm just trying to put something back after taking so much from this site.

No criticism at all, but I dont think the google doc link works 100%. Only gets down to separating the unit from the shock cage and then nada. Any thoughts Radmacks? Really appreciate your posting this fix out there!

Hello Radmacks,

I would be interested in a copy of this writeup if you still have it. I would really like to fix my radio. The link you have doesn't show everything.

Thanks.

I had found that a plastic worm gear had split, allowing the drive motor to run and not move the disc's. I put JB weld on the gear and shaft assy, and now it is working fine.

Thanks For posting the pdf. I know feel more confident in taking mine apart. Hopefully I will get the chance to take mine apart soon.

It might work, It wouldn't hurt doing it it might reset it, if that doesn't work post back and maybe more will help.

I did a quick search for this and it sounds like some guys were able to get it working again by disconnecting the power for a bit while others had to replace their head units. May be time to go aftermarket. Sounds like a tossup though...

thanks

Wow, I just came on the forum just to see if there were any people having this CD issue and here I find that this is common! and a fix file posted (I understand, my mileage may vary).

Thanks so much!. I'm going to give this a try this weekend. In the meantime I found that if I loaded a CD, let it spin and return "No CD", then pressed load again for the same CD slot#, it would finally "see" the CD about 80% of time. Slow... but I got by for a while. Now I need to (try to) fix it.
