Does anybody sell a cd changer kit?

Recommended Posts

I managed to get a hold of a Sony CDX-T62 changer. I thought I read somewhere of some places selling changer install kits that come with the mounting hardware & cable(I dont think the sony cable will work?) Can anybody help? This is going in a 02 Boxster

Ill check the cable one I get the unit. I was looking at buying the parts from porsche, but I was confused on the brackets available. I know there is this bracket from the "how to" sites on changer installs:

996 645 221 00

But I also found this :

g993 645 113 00 (rack for cd changer)

Do I need both?

Also, whats the part# for the cable?-if I need it

The rack is the magazine. Has nothing to do with mounting the changer. I'll look up the cable if you do get it.

I have never seen the CDX-T62. It was discontinued when I wanted to put a changer in so I went with Becker. I assume the Sony is identical and will mount on the Porsche bracket like the Becker unit does but you will have to verity.

If you get the mounting bracket from Continential they know all the other little parts you need. 2 clips 999 507 532 02. 6 screws 900 075 440 07. 2 well nuts 999 500 078 00. 2 bolts 900 378 179 09. You have the part number for the bracket. You also need the keys to pull the radio head.

The Porsche part number is 993 645 453 00. I think the Becker part number is 1184.709-276 - you need to verify. All you have to tell Becker or Continential is that you want a Silverstone cd changer cable.

The Becker cable is 17' long. We coil the excess and hide it next to the battery.

Well, I got the changer & hooked it up & I can eject the magazine, but the radio doesnt recognize the changer. Im going to re-check the plugs in the back of the radio-make sure nothings loose. Do I have to have the changer activated on the cdr-220 radio?
