View Full Version : CD Changer Hook-up in Trunk

Is this the changer hook up?:


It's on the drivers side in the trunk. Just wondering because I'm looking for a plug 'n play used changer for my MY 2001. There seems to be different variations of changers.

Mine was circular, that almost looks like the connection on the back of my Phatnoise.

should be a round connector. that's not the right one.

Hmmmmmmmm... what the heck is that then? Where would the round one be? I can't find any other connections back there

That is for the cell phone mumbo jumbo...

You should find it in the area.

Reach back more, the end should be covered in foam.

you may not even have one, some a4's dont.... does your headunit have the CD button on there???

Mine was behind the bracket used for holding the tool kit and stock cd changer. Romove the bracket and you'll see it, if you have one.

Remove the headunit and check if the plug in the upper left corner (at the rear) is used. If there`s no beginning of the wiring you don`t need to look for the ending any longer ((-: I was looking for the same thing few weeks ago since I also installed a CD changer. I will post a pic of the location where I installed it.

yes, my radio has the CDC control - as well as the plug in the back of it.

I'll pull out that bracket and see what's deeper down.

Keep digging Mike, mine was stashed way back in there. It had a foam piece covering the actual plug, which is a small round one.

Found it! it has 10 (13) pins - so I need to find a 13 pin changer. I hope all 13 pin changers are the same!

i have a 13 pin changer. do you want it?

buck, don't even mess with the stock changer. just get a phatbox. It's only like $170 shipped w/ a 20gb cartridge and everything else you need. The stock changers suck and have trouble reading cdr's. At least mine did. Heck, it's stopped working completely.
