Loren,

Thanks for the quick response. I have the TSB for the CDC-4 but it doesn't cover the removing the rear luggage compartment trim.

Once I have the CDC-4 inplaced, do you have the tool to activate the MOST for me? or should I just bring it to the dealer?

Thanks,

Hi Loren,

I got my new CDC-4 CD changer and tried to install it to my pre-wired 05 CS. Both of the power & optical cable are there and the plugs match. I spent a lot of time but still got no clue how the lugguage trims can be removed so I can put the changer onto the bracket. Do you have the removal procedure? Thanks.

I finally have the CD changer put in over the weekend. For me, it was impossible to do it right without help from other members of renntech. With the right directions and tools, I only broke one clip holder and was able to fix it with a gluegun. Thank you again for all the help.

In additional, my CS is 2005. I didn't have to activate the MOST for the CD changer. The unit works right after the two connectors plugged.

Congratulations on the install. I'm glad you found another member to help you out. After removing every bolt and fastener visible, I pulled and tugged and still did not get the side panel off. The instructions really did not help much. For fear of breaking one of the retaining clips, I finally gave up and sold my CDC-4 to a friend with a '05 Boxster S.

After all the hard work, I enjoyed the CD changer for 2 days and it went dead. First CEL came on for no reason, then the next day the PCM showed no cd changer. I thought I might have screwed something during the installation. I checked and found no scratch or break on the cable. I scheduled an appointment and brought it to the dealer and they found the CDC-4 was defected and replaced it for me in warranty. The CEL had nothing to do with the CDC-4. The CDC-4 was bought brand new from the Porsche dealer, and I should get used one the first place from ebay and save me few hundred dollars. I endup with a reconditioned one anyway.

Bummer about the dud CD changer. At least you have one now that works. Too bad the stock single disc player doesn't play MP3s (like on my daily driver Scion xB). On the Audi Nav system in my A4 2.0T Quattro, there are 2 SD card slots to play MP3s. I wish the Porsche Nav system had this feature.
