I desided to finally install the 6 disk changer I bought a couple of monthes ago...The changer is the AUDI unit....I am having a pain in the ass of a time getting the wiring out of the factory connector....The changer comes with a new connector which I believe I need to swap the wires out of the existing connector. I can see the connector pins have two retainers...I have removed the conector pin lock but cannot get the retainers to collaps enough to allow the connector to back out....Any ideas?[wrench]

You will need to use the OEM pin removal tool to properly remove it. Go to your Audi dealer they can surely take 5 minutes to help you.

It is a huge PITA. I hace used needles/pins in past and sweated it out but it has worked. Easy route is hit up dealer...

Thanks Scott!

That is exactly what I did...i tried for over 1h with no luck...stopped by the dealer and they did it for me in 5 min no charge!!!

Cd player is installed and working great! now I just need to find a good spot to mount it[;)]
