I have no idea when the CD changer was installed and it was something I forgot to check on before purchasing the car. I do have to address another issue with the salesman so I'll bring it up then. Let's see if I got this straight. If the player was taken out of another car and not divorced properly it basically becomes worthless? Seems like a bit of overkill though. Thanks again. Bob Bob
