How to Remove a CLK CD Changer

Updated February 21, 2017

The Mercedes CLK is one of the many models from the manufacturer that is equipped with standard stereo systems. These systems feature CD players that often come with CD changers, and they are usually of the six-disc variety. If your changer is stuck or has stopped working, you can remove the CLK changer in a few minutes using a simple tool such as a screwdriver.

Locate and remove all the screws and pressure clips around the CD player holding the panel of dashboard in place. Gently remove the dashboard piece once you have removed the screws and clips.

Unscrew the mounts from the bottom of the radio and unclip the harness on the back of the system that is holding the changer in place. This will require a good deal of pressure, but can be done with your thumb and forefinger.

Slide the changer out from underneath this harness from the back of the changer to remove it completely from the system.
