Subject: Re: CD Changer for '96 Saab 900S

NO SKIP PROBLEMS AT ALL. I'm driving on New York City streets that have some of the worst pavement and the biggest potholes I have ever seen and I have never heard it skipping yet. Further more ALL of the CD's that I am using are copies made on my computer at home and work just fine in the changer. The mounting DOES NOT use any Velcro but rather a very strong double sided tape. I have mounted the brackets under the upholstery directly onto the metal, than just made small holes in the upholstery for the mounting screws. When the upholstery is put back in place it pushes down on the brackets and all that is seen are the four mounting screws sticking up. Than I just placed the cd changer and secured it with the wingnuts. The mounting tape is very strong yet it absorbs some vibrations, it has a rating of 2 lb per so make certain that you measure the exact spot for the brackets or else you'll have a very hard time taking it off. Also make sure that the position selectors are set to vertical otherwise it will skip. If you'd like let me know and I can post some pictures on my website that can show exactly what I am describing above and help you with the installation. In the end it looks very clean and professionally installed and it most certainly does not use any Velcro to secure anything. I am however thinking about getting the cd changer bag from the Saab catalog. I think it will look very nice and give it that factory touch. Alex PS You are right about being careful for something not to run into it ...
