CDC-4 CD Changer Install Help - where to start?

Recommended Posts

hi there,

i looked here and here but i am still a little bit confused by what needs to happen (and i am usually good with working on my own car too).

i bought a CDC-4 on ebay. it came without any brackets or wire harnesses.

my dealer tells me i can get the brackets ($50) and optical wire harness ($243) from him.

the question is... is there a good, step-by-step, DIY write-up on how to do this project?

Yes, I know the economy is not doing well and... we have to pay for the TSBs we get from Porsche too.

Been on the site for over 2 years and and you haven't noticed the Donate buttons? ;)

Just click on any Donate button at the top left or very bottom of any page.

Thanks!

At a work on cars day 4 years ago Raman put the changer in his 2003. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...29&hl=Raman Loren was there that day.

Raman is good at this kind of stuff and figured it out using the TSB. Put the car back together but did not know if it worked until Peter Smith turned it on with the PST2, and it worked. I have a PST2 and can turn it on if someone will tell me what buttons to push.

Raman bought the changer as a kit from Brandywine so it had all the parts. Also bought the fiber optic kit from Brandywine but it turned out to be the wrong one, and had to run over to Stevens Creek Porsche for the correct kit.
