I have an '04 Linear and I was wondering if I could switch out my stock radio/cd player with some alternate type with an AUX.
you cannot swap it out for another besides the stock unit because of the fiberoptic system. you can add aux in (do a search there is a guide it is pretty easy to do). you need a dealer/indie with tech2 for both jobs (to marry the cd player and to enable auxin)Well you see, my CD player recently broke. I think one of the gears broke on the mechanism that ejects the disc. When I press the eject button I just hear a "plasticy" grinding noise from inside and the disc wont pop out. So I just really want a new CD player.
people have done it before but yeah it isn't a normal DIN slot and won't fit right. also you have to find a way to keep the stock radio plugged in. more of a pia then it is worth imho. I'm working on getting a galaxy tab 7 and fabricating a mount for it over the radio and have it kind of look like the bmw navigationi dont understand why everyone says you cant put an aftermarket radio in. you can 100% swap in an aftermarket radio. there is no dash kits for our cars so that would all have to be custom. you would need to keep the fiber optics all connected for the audio system to work though, and that turns most people away from doing a swap. if all you want is an aux input then add the aux and get it tech 2'ed
