    CDR 500 not releasing CD

    Hi there. New to this forum as I have recently purchased a Zafira 54 plate on the old shape. I have the CDR 500 head unit but there is a CD stuck in it. I have tried holding the Eject button down for over 10 sec, but the unit keeps coming up with Error CD and then switching to the Radio Channel. If I select CD again then try again, it searches for information on the CD but then comes up with Error CD again.

    Couple of questions, is there anything that I can do to release the CD from the headunit, and if I was to replace the headunit are there any recommendations as to what to replace it with. Would like to have one with Bluetooth built in, piped through the car speakers.

    Any help, information is much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Welcome mate

    There's nothing you can do to release the CD with the radio in the dash. What i'd do is remove it (making sure you have the code first) then take the top off it to try and work out how the internal mech works. In my experience these just get jamed and with a little help release the cd and work fine again after

    Remember you have nothing to loose if you break it even more inside

    Thanks for the advise, will give it a go and see what happens. On the other note does anyone have a recommended replacement with Bluetooth functionality. I would like to keep the steering wheel control if possible so any additional cables required would also be of great help.

    Thanks to anyone for advise.
